On this day...

On this day in 1922, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks came to Montreal. Whilst here, these two holiwood stars visited the City Hall, and signed the 'livre d'or', which I assume to some kind of visitor book for the city.

Whilst the couple were here, they stayed at the Ritz Carlton where:

When Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks booked rooms at the Ritz-Carlton, crowds thronged outside to see them. Fairbanks would climb out onto the hotel’s balcony above the sidewalk to acknowledge the ardent admirers. (Source)
