Bridges Over The St-Lawrence River(1): Honore Mercier Bridge, Quebec
This is an interesting set of 2 postcards of the Honore Mercier, one of several bridges that connects Montreal to the South Shore. This bridge passes over both the St-Lawrence River and the St-Lawrence Seaway. Note the vivid colours and handpainted flowers on the second version!
I believe this photograph is taken from the shore of what is now the borough of Lasalle looking towards Kahnawake (aka Caughnawaga) and Chateauguay. I grew up in Lasalle in the 50s/60s and have been living in Chateauguay since the 90s.
Chateauguay is full of people whose families came from Lasalle and Verdun.
