About The Poster:  This original print is from a vintage edition of La Presse, a French Canadian newspaper. ran for nearly a century under different owners between 1836 and 1938. As La Presse recently went digital, this piece is really quite the find! This particular image is from a drawing by Georges Latour (1877–1946), a Quebec-born artist and illustrator at La Presse from 1910 until his death in 1946. His realist style reflects the traditional training he received at collège des Frères des écoles chrétiennes, a French-language Christian college.

The caption describes how Montrealers celebrate New Years Day - by spending time with family and waving to neighbours as your sleighs pass each other by in the snowy countryside!

Recently matted, this print would look wonderful in any living room, kitchen, or even children's room!
