  • La bolduc

    Period photo of La Bolduc (Mary Bolduc) with fellow musicians

    This talented Quebecker, who sang, played the fiddle, harmonica, accordion and jaw harp, had low-paying jobs before becoming Québec’s most popular singer-songwriter!

    With her songs that told about modest citizens’ everyday lives, La Bolduc was quite successful in 1920-1930. She was known as the “Queen of Canadian Folksingers”.

  • Proud Captain Lazare Allard

    Portrait of Captain Lazard Allard.

    In 1908, the Atlantic provinces were linked to the Intercolonial railway network via steamship connections. The steamer Lady Eileen ran between New Brunswick and Gaspésie.

    Just when its captain, Lazare Allard, retired leaving Joseph Leblanc at the helm, the steamer hit a reef and sank!

    There were no victims, but the skipper’s pride took a hit…

  • The Anse-à-Beaufils general store

    Reproduction of the counter of a general store of days gone by.

    The Robin Fishing Company, headquartered in Paspébiac in Gaspésie, was one of the biggest fishing concerns in Eastern Canada.

    Distributing salted code to Europe and America, its ships brought all kinds of products back from their voyages.

    These goods were sold in the company’s general store, where fishermen could exchange their catches for food stuffs and other products.
