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).
THE EVENT IS FREE AND ALL ARE WELCOME. Refreshments will be served during the vernissage. The pictures will be displayed till May 18th, 2014.
