According to the publisher: "The author has taken 1909 and the old Montreal Star newspaper to show us Montreal of 107 years ago. In quotes from The Star and comments, he chose 1909, the end of the Edwardian Period, where the news was of the Cannon Royal Commission into municipal corruption, the 'Back to Montreal' weekend, and a typhoid epidemic. We can see how citizens coped in poor conditions and how they enjoyed summer and winter outdoor fun. We can see municipal problems as well as humorous events that caught a reporter's eye. We see how far and not-so-far Montreal has come in the last 100 years."
