Index: Headstones of St-Constant Cemetery

This is a selection of some of the older headstones of the Cimetière de Saint-Constant which is located not too far from where I live in Chateauguay on Montreal’s South Shore. The images will be appearing every two days or more.

I haven’t photographed all the headstones but if anyone need a particular one then I can go back and get it. Just drop me a line in the comment boxes below.
