Photographer's Note

Although not an original vantage point, this street in Trois-Rivieres really is the most picturesque in the city. Trois-Rivieres was originally settled in 1634 (making it the second oldest city in Quebec), however, hardely any the original archiecture survived the 1908 fire. Fortunately, this small area was spared.

The silver building in the middle is the Ursuline monestary. There are still some nuns left in the convent, but the buidling is also now a museum.

The other prominent building on the right is also a Church, though suprisingly it is Anglican by domination. Trois-Rivieres is in the heart of the francophone province of Quebec, but at one time there were a number of anglophones who worked in the region. Today, apparently there are only about 20 members left of the Anglican congregation.
