Thanks to Mr. Italo for a wonderful find: A 1947 National Film Board documentary capturing the flavor of Montreal after-hours. Growing up in the 1950’s I still remember vestiges of these scenes; the tram cars, and the nightclubs that my parents would go to on special occasions to dress up, dine, and dance the night away. Very cool.

Make sure to watch it in High Quality mode and Full Screen.
