I took these pictures today of 4835 Wellington where Tousignant & Frère was situated. You can see it is the same building that was modified. Notice that the store has a mattress on display leaning against the window. It seemed to be strapped as if it was for advertising purposes, It is a furniture restauration shop.
Mattresses should not be allowed outside and the city should forbid it. I checked the 1959 & 1960 Guardians in our archives (SHGV) but did not find the article on the murder of one of the brothers. Our archives on the Guardians are between 1930s to 1960s. I may be wrong but I feel the incident happened earlier in the 50s. However, I have a mutual agreement with the Messanger and I will see if I can come up with the article.
Here is another photo of the whole building but looking in the opposite direction. The old Tousignant store was where the mattress is.You can also see the beautifull arches that I find attractive and that are prominent in Verdun. We did'nt seem to notice them in our younger days living in Verdun.
HERE'S ANOTHER PHOTO TAKEN FROM THE SAME ANGLE AS THE OLD PHOTO SO THAT WE CAN COMPARE. I JUST CAN'T STOP ADMIRING THOSE ARCHES. TOO BAD THOSE VEHICULES ARE IN THE WAY.
