ROOM 1742 – MONTREAL, CANADA


The suite was on the 17th floor of the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal.  The date was May 26th to June 2nd 1969.  John and Yoko stayed in bed for 8 days in order to “Give Peace a Chance.”  I recently went to this hotel on vacation, and noticed this book on the counter.  Why John and Yoko?  So I asked and they immediately escorted my friends and myself up to see the “John Lennon Suite.”  This is where I took these photos on the walls.  It was all set up as it was in 1969 except the position of the bed had been moved.  I was thrilled to see history right before my eyes and under my feet.  I ran to buy this book for my collection and the memory.  This is a great holiday gift with warmth and feeling.  A great price for a remarkable memorable and moving chronicle of that wondrous event.  BTW, this book also comes in French!
