Ferry St Louis
Here is an excellant photo of a typical ferry that operated between Verdun and Laprairie wich I found in an old Guardian at the SHGV. It is at the second ave wharf (Quaie Leblanc) and you can also see the tracks of the Lower Lachine Road (LaSalle) streetcar nearby. I have added the photo to my Album no. 28. I have added a photo of the Leblanc Wharf wich gives us a view from the opposite direction. These ferries stopped operating in the late 30s.
