A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme day for the first of November is Kindness.

Carrying on with this visit to the Museum of History. Here we have furnishings of the New France era.

This is a portrait of Charles de la Boische, Marquis de Beauharnois, the Governor General of New France from 1726-1747. It was painted around 1748 by Robert Levrac-Tournieres.

The church played a big role in life in New France.

The women who came to New France to help bring the colony along left their own legacy. Such is the case with a large sculpture in this area that displays just a few generations of descendants of one woman, Catherine Moitie.

This is what the sculpture itself looks like, each line rising up from the base representing her descendants. As productive as she was, her family line endures today.

This clock, dating to the 1700s, belonged to the Baron of Longeuil.

For today I leave off with these various household goods of New France.
