Ferry Service Verdun-La Tortue-Laprairie
There used to be a ferry service between Verdun and the South Shore as described in following articles/photos:
Service: La Tortue-Verdun, Sainte Catherine-Verdun, Laprairie-Montreal and Laprairie-Pointe Saint Charles.
Also enclosed is the tragedy that cost the lives of 40 to 50 people on the 19th of May 1819 above Nun's Island when a boat similar to the one shown capsized during a storm.
I have also reprinted photos of a ferry landing on torchy warf (Quaie de la Tortue) that previously appeared as they are on the same subject.
