The area, historically known as Les Tanneries because of the artisans shops where leather tanning took place, was named for St. Henry via the Église Saint-Henri, which at one time formed Place Saint-Henri along with the community’s fire and police station. Nearby, the bustle of a passenger rail station was immortalized in the song “Place St. Henri.”

|Mother and daughter sketching together.|
On recommendation of one of the parents, we decided to sketch the passers-by. The catch was that they were, well, passing by. It’s hard to sketch things in motion. So we decided to focus on just one aspect of each person as they passed, and attempted to create one (or more) whole people out of a bunch of people. This was pretty fun.
|This is my rather rushed sketch. I took photos to finish it later, but who knows if that will happen!|
