Title
The Segregated City: Residential Differentiation, Rent and Income in Montreal, 1861-1901
Abstract
An examination of the development of residential differentiation, based on class and occupational segregation, in late nineteenth-century Montreal. The author demonstrates that household rents accurately reflected the city's occupational and class divisions as well as the income of the working class during this period. The investigation of residential differentiation and rent structure was undertaken within the framework of what the author terms "the industrial capitalist pedestrian city (the industrial city)". He describes three features that characterize the industrial city: the development of new social relations of production; the massive growth of urban population and territory; and the the restrictions on the journey-to-work.
