Stairway to heaven

One of the first things you notice in Montreal neighborhoods is the staircases. 
At least in lovely Plateau Mont-Royal, they're everywhere. 
They look so pretty when there are two next to each other, like a theater set. 
I half-expected dancers or Blanche DuBois to come out. 
But even the single staircases are elegant. 
Here's a spiral out the kitchen door of my guesthouse. 
And a triple spiral covering all three floors: architectural DNA. I'm not so sure about the laundry lines.
