49 Elderly Exercising at Chinatown in Montreal, Canada

The first Chinese immigrants came to Montreal in 1877. The community grew rapidly around De La Gauchetière Street and was designated as Chinatown in 1902. The pedestrian-only walkway through the neighborhood is filled with ethnic restaurants and businesses. They cater to the Chinese plus tourists seeking a cultural experience and cuisine. These elderly women are engaging in traditional Chinese mind and body exercises. This centuries-old activity improves motor movements while offering social interaction. They are standing at Place Sun Yat-sen. The small event venue is named after the first president of the Republic of China. A bust of the Father of the Nation is seen on the right.
