Verdun Waterfront

Some images from the Virtual Museum Canada.

Around 1900 at the foot of Church Avenue, now known as De L’eglise.

1907.

This may be what my father’s generation would have called LeBlanc’s Wharf.

Tourist boat that would go through the Lachine Rapids area.

By 1930 the dike had been long built and the famous boardwalk appears.

Boardwalk was paved over in the early 40′s.

More in the coming weeks.
