Ways Of Life

Here we have a clock of the New France era. Below it is a medal, a Croix of St. Louis.


Other household items and furnishings are on display.


A large mural wraps around here.


Over time, the French language in the New World would move in its own direction from that of the Old World, both in the New France era and afterwards.

  3. The wooden chair on the right in the 3rd photo looks like the school chair many years ago. Nice mural and interesting exhibits.

  4. Language always evolves and differences in dialects and local words and phrases are formed. Absolute uniformity would be quite dull, eh?

  5. Tanto los muebles y el reloj, manifiestan una época, así como su esplendor.

  11. I love seeing things that people used in their homes -- dishes, candlesticks, the spinning wheel and clock. It takes me to another time.
