These photos show the intersection of LaSalle Boul. on the left and Wellington Street on the right looking south. You can see the Notre Dame des Sept Douleurs church in the background. The park at the intersection was called Parc du Souvenirs and the name of the parc was changed in 2005 to Parc des Madelinots in honor of the Madelinots who moved to Verdun at the beginning of the 20th century and their social club is situated next to the park.The War monument called "The memorial of the Victory of Verdun" wich was standing there since 1924 was moved in front of city hall and the Canadian legion on Verdun avenue between 1st ave and Willibrord St. in 1959.
