A place of great beauty, the Mount Royal Cemetery was an inspiration for Frederick Law Olmstead's adjacent Mount Royal Park and played a part in the development of the city of Montreal. Brian Young shows how the history of the Mount Royal Cemetery mirrors the evolving social makeup, changing mores, and tragic events of what was long Canada's largest city. He examines the changes in the cemetery's landscaping, architecture, and use and shows how, in its evolution from a rural burying ground founded by Montreal's Protestant elite to an urban cemetery, Mount Royal Cemetery has introduced Montreal to new customs and sensibilities from Jewish, Chinese, Greek Orthodox, Buddhist, and other communities."--Jacket." ;
