Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, 1896

Richard Lauzon, Yvon Lauzon’s cousin, sent me these pictures.

Hi Pierre,
These are pictures of Ste-Anne taken in 1896.

The convent and the train station appeared in the newspaper Le Monde illustré on the Saturday edition of June 6, 1896.

The picture titled L’amour dans le nord, was published on January 2,  1897 and Après la messe was published on February 6, 1897 in the same newspaper. I think all the pictures were taken at the same time in 1896.

I have had the original copies of this newspaper since I was 18 when I was at cegep d’Ahuntsic.

I was also puzzled by the couple’s identity in the sleigh.
