Rue Prince-Arthur

This small pedestrian street, named for Prince Arthur, third son of Queen Victoria and governor-general of Canada from 1911 to 1916, was a popular centre of the counterculture movement during the 1960s. Today the area is home to Italian and Greek restaurants, and is populated in fine weather by musicians, magicians, acrobats, portrait painters, and other street performers.
