AN HISTORIC EXCURSION ON MONDAY, May 14, 1956, the Third Forms rented a bus — their purpose, to see the historic sights of the older section of Montreal and the country surrounding it. Accompanied by Mrs. Tomkins, they visited Place d ' Armes, Notre Dame Cathedral with its magnificently carved interior and large organ, the Sulpician Seminary, and the Aldred Building, cons- tructed like the Empire State Building, but on a smaller scale. They also visited the Chateau de Ramezay, Bonsecours Church, and Basco ' s Hotel, the Ritz Carlton of the 1830 ' s — all of which are in the same district. The girls were surprised to notice how many of the streets and buildings in this section of Montreal bear the names of early French settlers and explorers. After lunching on St. Helen ' s Island, the girls saw the barracks built by the British for the defence of Montreal after the war of 1812, and also the tower and blockhouse where the Italian prisoners were kept during the last war. They then left the Island by the Harbour Bridge. Fort Chambly was their next stop. Here the girls saw the Fort, which is now under the care of the National Parks Service as an historic park. Over the main entrance are carved the names of early soldiers, and the Fort contains a dungeon, an ammunition store-room, and exhibits from the period of Jean Talon. The Third Forms ' last short stop before ending the excursion was La Prairie, where they saw the monument commemorating the fall of Fort La Prairie. They then boarded the bus and returned to school, ending a day which all had enjoyed. Glee Willows, Form IVa, Fairley House.
