Feb 19 2012

Today I came across Sound Central Record Store Cafe, a great second-hand record store come cafe on Coloniale Avenue (just south of ave Mont-Royal).

Sound Central is one of many stores across Montreal specializing in second-hand vinyl and CD’s. In addition to music, Sound Central also has a selection of books, magazines, DVD’s and collectible toys, as well as serving coffee.

The store is on a residential street and can’t be missed, being painted red and having old vinyls running over the door and windows.

After managing to escape the urge to increase my music collection, on the way home I managed to  captured a few more shots in the surrounding Plateau area.

The last picture of the day is of the unique distinctive signage for Montreal Piano located on Rachel est. The store was established in 1969 by Louis Lovsin, Sr and continued in 1987 by Louie Lovsin Jr.
