This original print is from a vintage edition of La Presse, a Canadian newspaper. It was founded in 1884, and continues to publish papers six days a week! This particular image was 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.
Featured here is the Catholic Church in Chateauguay, built in 1685 and considered to be one of the oldest churches in Canada.
