Clark and Guilbault in 1958

The Centre d’histoire looks at the snowy corner of Clark and Guilbault in 1958, and tells us a bit about Stanley Clark Bagg, who’s up there with our friend Jean-Marie Cadieux as a landowner who shaped the Plateau that we know.

For Women’s Day, four women have been named historical Quebec figures: Agathe de Saint‑Père, an early businesswoman in Montreal (and wife of Pierre Legardeur de Repentigny), soprano Emma Albani, publisher Joséphine Marchand, and Berthe Chaurès-Louard, whose social activism led to the creation of a consumer cooperative. All have history in Montreal, so I’m blogging this.
