Jackie Robinson's breakthrough at Stade De Lorimier Lives on with Stadium Art Movement T-shirt

Summer is a fine time to wear a T-shirt with a defunct stadium printed on it.

2nd June, 2013 (Montreal) Stade de Lorimier no longer stands but there is still a playing field where the legendary Jackie Robinson broke the colour barrier while playing for the Montreal Royals during the 1940s. This shows the stadium looking towards the city centre before the architects of the New International School got their hands on the skyline. In the foreground we can see the roof of the now-famous Grover Building. Despite the disappearance from the landscape of this absolute baseball treasure, this district still remains a very vibrant and desirable area of Montreal's East End.
