--April 5, 2016. It was not quite dancing in the streets. More accurately, there was a lot of strolling and conversation. Between World Wars I and II Shawbridge was a magnet for the residents of Montreal's teeming Jewish neighbourhoods. Road access was poor but the train made the little community on the lower side of the bridge, across the North River a welcome respite from the city. Shawbridge served as a summer resort destination. There were cottages available to rent weekly or for the season and modest hotel/rooming houses.

Some years ago, this unusual stone was built into a wall of an old home in Beaconsfield, Quebec. The stone had been found nearby on the property, and then incorporated in the wall during masonry work. Barbara Barclay, the owner of the house in question, would like to know if this stone is the result of human art, or whether it was formed naturally. Please contact QAHN if you have any ideas!
