Little Italy of Montreal or «Piccola Italia» - the very beginning

Italian families slowly left Downtown Montreal to settle North of Van Horne street and South of Jean-Talon. As we can see in the Montreal Lovell directory of 1911-1912, Clark street is one of those streets where we could find several italian families.

We noted the same on the 1911 Canada census for Clark street, from the bottom of page 1 continuing on page 2.

On those pages of the 1911 census, we can find very interesting informations: the year of arrival of the migrant and in what year he was naturalized, if the case.
