FLASHBACK: The Aquarius Bathhouse In Montreal Is Firebombed (April 1975)
The Aquarius bathhouse on Crescent Street in Montreal is firebombed…
In April 1975, when Montreal’s Gay Village was still downtown, the Aquarius bathhouse on Crescent Street was firebombed. The perpetrators were never found or arrested.
Three customers died that night, and two of them—found by the second-floor fire exit—were buried in Paupers’ Field in Montreal’s Notre-Dame-des-Neiges cemetery in anonymous graves, because their bodies were never identified or claimed by their families.
