Verdun in Black and White: Family Photographs from the 1940s/1950s

In 1955 our Theriaults were living in Verdun on ave. de l’Eglise (Church Avenue) in a third floor walkup.

This extract from the 1956 Lovell’s Directory confirms that my parents were living at 1429 ave de l’Eglise. it also mentions that my father (whose nickname was Eddy) was working at the local Steinberg’s.

  1. I love photographs from the 1950’s and earlier. It is fun to see parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and others, particularly those we have never met and never will meet in our lifetime. The pictures are wonderful ways to see how they lived.
