"Field Commander Cohen: Tour of 1979" cover location

Postby zetaequis » Sat Sep 03, 2016 8:30 am

Hi ;)

I am looking a location cover.

Does anyone know what the name of the street that appears in the cover "Tour of 1979 Field Commander Cohen" album?. It must be Europe (France, Belgium, Germany)... I've been looking for with google street view but i couldn't find it

I think that the indication is the Gothic cathedral in the background.
Thanks

I do not know where it is, but the cars parked on the street look more American/Canadian than European. Not to mention the wide street, which doesn't seem very European. Montreal or New York City, perhaps? Of course, I could be wrong.

I think it is Crescent Street in Montreal. Try putting in 2055 Crescent Street into google maps. I think the church is Erskine and American United Church.

Very clever. I always wonder where that pic was taken.
