Photographer's Note

In a previous post, I showed you the entrance of the ancient Quebecer village.
Well, we went inside, in spite of the long and slow queue.

I found very interesting the presence of people portrayed in the village. They behave exactly as if they were in old times – characters of yore ;-) If you don't ask questions, they continue their activities after saying a kind hello to you. But if you ask a question, so they will explain everything in detail, how they live. They don't tell stories about people from the past times, they use first-person speech (I, we) and in the present tense. They are good actors. It seemed we had crossed the tunnel of time ;-)
At 6pm the doors of the village close, the employees go back to their real life in future ;-)

This lady was preparing a quilt, very appreciated here in Quebec. We have one of these quilts at home, made by the mother of my husband, a very beautiful work.

In Workshop#1, I added a picture of a kitchen sink, with a water pump. You may notice that there is no tap. And the deformations of the reflection seen on the mirror are not the fault of my picture – the material looks rather like an aluminum foil covered by a transparent plastic. There are other true good mirrors, but we saw often like this one, mainly in the kitchens.

In Workshop#2, a traditional baking bread oven, outside, to not heat too much the house.

The Village Québécois d'antan is a place to visit! Really interesting!
