Montreal wasn't always a great place to visit. After World War I, the place was called as a sex tourist destination. Most of the Americans would take the small trip over the boundary to Montreal to take care of all their illegal needs.

Following the end of prohibition, the government of Montreal decided to finish the practices like illegal gambling and prostitution. These vintage mug shots of some of the prostitutes which were arrested in Montreal show a very unusual side of life that many of us do not know anything about it.
