Artist's Description

The islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon are located off the south coast of Newfoundland, Canada,in the North Atlantic Ocean, and are a department of France, just as if they were in Europe.They have been that way since 1536, when they were established as a fishing destination.Another phase of colorful history, though short-lived, was during American Prohibition, when the islands were a major staging point for liquor.

This photo is of the Cathedral,which just dates from 1907—the original one, built in 1690, burned down in 1902. Taken on a Sunday morning of course, as the islanders are mostly devout Catholics.

Taken in the summer of 1966
