Farine Five Roses : our heritage in lights
The illuminated Farine Five Roses sign will continue to add colour to the Montréal skyline, thanks to Smucker Foods of Canada Corp., an American company that funded repairs to this iconic sign. The company’s private contribution enabled the preservation of the sign, originally erected in 1948 and much beloved by all Montrealers, but it also highlighted its historical importance as a symbol of our industrial heritage. Let’s celebrate their enthusiasm about preserving the neon sign, as well as the efforts expended by Héritage Montréal in doing so. Amazing things happen when people work together!
