  Description     The film  
Montreal's St. Lawrence Boulevard was for years the neighbourhood that most warmly welcomed European immigrants. Here a newspaper and magazine shop is shown to be an informal community centre where new Canadians, especially Hungarians, could find not only news, but soccer scores, recorded music and advice on numerous topics.
