Photographer's Note

Picture taken in January, 2008.

Fernando Martim de Bulhões e Taveira Azevedo, more known as Saint Anthony - his statue at the top of the façade of the building called my attention on Grande Allée of Quebec City. Known almost everywhere in the world as Saint Anthony of Padua, Portuguese people call him Saint Anthony of Lisbon, because he was Portuguese born in Lisbon.
In my country of origin, Brazil, people have great devotion to him.

The building is the Monastère et la Chapelle des Sœurs Franciscaines de Marie.
This priceless value urban architectural complex, conceived by the architect Eugene Etienne Tache, designer of the Parliament of Quebec, will be reduced to zero. The building located in Quebec City, on the corner of Grande Allée and Claire Fontaine street, a treasure of the Quebecer inheritance, was sold to Quebec City, which decided to demolish it, supported by the Ministry for the Culture, according to what we can read on this article HERE (update), among others.

Once more something to fall into the archives of the History, once again the famous sentence, which seems fateful, will be in high-light… Je me souviens. At least, I took a photograph as a souvenir.

B&W in WS#1.

A closer view of the statue, in WS#2.
