Thanks to ramage for alerting me to this wonderful site
This collection contains close to 7,000 illustrations related to Québec and covering the period 1870 to 1907. It includes photographs and drawings published in three Québec periodicals of those times: L'Opinion publique, Le Monde illustré and L'Album universel. The collection offers an incomparably rich view of the daily life of Québec society in political, cultural and the economic terms.

Seriously rotten weather coming your way Miss B. Rug up this week.

And the Big Men Fly?
Hard to believe rottenness is in store after a beautiful weekend, that all Melburnians needed - to get us through the bleakness. But how can I argue with the Adelaide uber bureau?

As I write, Hailstorms are seen to the west, and driving rain and freezing howling winds... abandon ship. Women and dogs first...
