To and Across Canada

Mosaïculture International Exhibition, Montréal

Notre Dame

On our way from the subway to the Exhibition, we passed Notre Dame Cathedral. Local residents told us that, although Montréal and the rest of Quebec are predominantly Catholic, the people are not dogmatic about it.

monument to Paul de Chomedey del Maisonneuve

We also passed this monument to Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the first governor of Montréal under the French monarchy.

The theme of the 2003 Exhibition was Myths and Legends of the World. The Exhibition was on the south bank of the Canal de Lachine, adjacent to the Old Port (Vieux-Port de Montréal). Much of it was on an island that separates the canal from its spillway. As Evelyn and I walked along the Exhibition, we also saw several pleasure craft negotiating the canal's locks. On the far (south) side of the spillway, the Exhibition was at the base of old grain elevators that are being redeveloped for commercial use.

I took over 30 photographs of Exhibition entries. Here I present just a few, including the Grand Prize winners in both the three-dimensional and two-dimensional categories. Each caption identifies the entry's sponsor and title. Because of the number of bytes of even these few (over 265 KB), I have split them into two sets.
