Readers always loved those stories, but…they would rather not admit it.
Vicky Lapointe, graduate historian from Sherbrooke University, signs a special newspaper blog. She combs through Quebec old newspapers to present us with crimes and catastrophies, francophones from outside Quebec and some pictures, medicine, history and patrimonial buildings.
It is suprising to see what kind of news would make the paper a century or two ago, how people responded, and yes…what strange crimes were being commited. I also enjoy reading about events that are now part of history, as they happened.
