Horsing Around in Old Montreal

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. With all the snow and wintery conditions in Europe this past weekend I’m a little hesitant to tell you that it was very Spring like in Toronto yesterday. So much so that I headed down to the Lakeshore yesterday for some sunset shots. I’m working on processing them and will share a little later in the week.

In the mean time I was going back through my archives and I was surprised that I hadn’t posted this shot. I shot this last August while strolling through Old Montreal.

Old Montreal, which is located along the St. Lawrence River is the oldest area in the City of Montreal, dating back to New France in the mid-1600s. In 1964 it was declared a historic district by the Ministère des Affaires culturelles du Québec.

Today its cobblestoned streets are lined with galleries and restaurants and in the summer it comes alive with street performers. If you didn’t know any better you’d think you were walking through a small town in Europe.

The Greatest Remedy

Project 52 – Entry #34

We’re back at Black Creek Pioneer village. I shared a number of images from this terrific place before Christmas and I still have a few I want to share with you. Can you image a peddler steering this horse drawn carriage through a village selling his “Greatest Remedy” concoction. Good for both internal and external use….hmmm?
