  3. It’s just a drawing by a guy born in 1908. Rene de la Voye could have looked totally different than that.

    • Good evening Todd,
      yes, unfortunately in those days no one was making illustrations or paintings of average everyday people. At stated in the introduction “The series was privately created by Quebec’s Brasserie Labatt Limitee as an hommage to the pioneer roots of the Labatt family and its employees shortly after the 350th anniversary of the founding of Quebec.”.
      I’ve always wished that Labatt had commissioned illustrations of the early female ancestors as well 🙂
      Thanks for the comment,
      Evelyn
