Ever wonder how people got around before the automobile was invented, that's right by stagecoach on the dirt roads all around the world. The top scene could very well have been on LaSalle boulevard, previously named at various times in the past:
Lower Lachine Road
Côte à Penniston
Côte des Argoulets
Chemin de la Rivière St Pierre
Of course. LaSalle boulevard was an Indian trail prior to the arrival of the white man and even during the the beginning of colonisation. We where all fascinated by the Hollywood cowboy movies such as John Wayne on a stagecoach being attaked by a group of indians (Stagecoach 1939). There may even have been similar scenes acting out on LaSalle boulevard, perhaps not so dramatically, nevertheless, with a bit of imagination, we can imagine such a scenario.
