History: Some bits about the old port and a baby

The Centre d’histoire piece this weekend is a few fragments about the Old Port.

The Gazette is doing an intermittent feature called “history through our eyes” and this weekend it’s the discovery of an abandoned baby at the airport in 1968. It’s a lame piece, though, because the main point about doing archival items is to add something, either a comparison or an extension to the story, and there’s nothing here about either finding out whose baby it was, or tracking her down and finding out how she’s doing now. Just an old news bit.
