Brompton Pulp and Paper Co. Inc. office in Garthby

This is a picture of the Brompton Pulp and Paper office in Garthby (now Beaulac-Garthby). The building is on one level and relatively small. The walls are covered with wooden slats. The soffit is decorated with two rows of small vertical elements called "dentils". The upper corners where the walls meet are decorated with "triglyphs" and "drops" at their base. The façade has a gallery whose roof covers the entire width of the building. The gallery opens on the left and on the right. The roof of the gallery is supported by four columns equally distributed from left to right. The two columns at the left and right ends are square and topped with a simple abacus. The two columns in the center are round and curved, the lower part being more domed than the upper part; they are surmounted by four Ionic-style volutes.

St-Jacques street in Garthby

Garthby, St-Jacques Street, looking west from the intersection with St-François Street, about 1918. Remarkable photograph as for the details that we find there: the car, the wooden sidewalks, the architecture of the buildings, the clothes of the passers-by. Taking in account the clothes people are wearing, picture was probably taken on a Sunday, after mass.
The car is a Ford T 1916 or 1917 (identified by the shape of the rear window, the shape of the radiator at the front and the shape and type of the headlights).
