Our photo of the week comes from Flickr whiz Madame B. She’s got a whole slew of delightful pics, including some stellar black & white work.

This photo, despite its ambiguous origins (iPhone app or Polaroid?), captures the iconic “Five Roses” sign in vintage, faded glory.  The sign has been an iconic part of the city’s skyline since its erection in 1948. With continued controversy over its future, ours suggestion is to plan a visit sooner than later, before it disappears from the Montreal skyline forever.

For more information check out the Farine Five Roses Art Project, which is devoted to maintaining and celebrating the historic billboard.
