The East­ern Town­ships Re­source Cen­tre (ETRC) cor­dially in­vites you to visit its new photo ex­hi­bi­tion at the North Hat­ley Li­brary. As part of the ex­hi­bi­tion se­ries

the ETRC is open­ing its ar­chives to share the trea­sures of sev­eral fonds and col­lec­tions with the broader pub­lic. The ex­hi­bi­tion show­cases a small se­lec­tion of the thou­sands of re­mark­able pho­to­graphs in the ETRC’s collection.

is a photo- graph ex­hi­bi­tion that dis­plays the life along rivers and lakes in the East­ern Town­ships of Que­bec and takes you on a jour­ney back in time.

is an ex­cit­ing look into the past of the East­ern Town­ships.

Dis­cover the changes marked by the style of cloth­ing and the qual­ity and set­ting of the pho­to­graphs. Al­though the ex­hibit’s time­frame from 1890 to 1950 re­flects these changes through­out the decades, the time­less as­pect of what it means to live in the Town­ships has not changed. The Mas­saw­ippi, Mem­phrem­a­gog, St. Fran­cis, and count­less lakes have shaped the land­scape of the East­ern Town­ships and the life­style of its people. In the beau­ti­ful re­gion of the East­ern Town­ships, wa­ter has al­ways been a place for leisure and es­cape. These pic­tures show that swim­ming, ca­noe­ing, and fish­ing have al­ways been a source of fun and the time­less as­pect of hav­ing pic­nics by the shore has re­mained the same. But liv­ing by the wa­ter means also liv­ing with the ever-present dan­ger of flood­ing. How­ever, spring, fall and win­ter floods and ice jams have also served to shape and grow our com­mu­ni­ties.

The ETRC is thank­ful for the co­op­er­a­tion with the North Hat­ley Li­brary for giv­ing us the op­por­tu­nity to dis­play our pho­to­graphs in this beau­ti­ful build­ing. The pic­tures will be dis­played till May 18th, 2014 at the North Hat­ley Li­brary (165, rue Main, North Hat­ley).
