In the early 20th century, the cider press house was unrecognizable. Its successive owners showed little concern for its overall condition.
The apple press was removed, a ceiling was built, and it became a home to many families. Children generally slept on the second floor, beneath the roof.
An addition was made to the building toward Gouin Boulevard, and with it, three different civic numbers were given to as many distinct housing units.
This photograph shows the backyards of the homes located at 10861 and 10865 Du Pressoir Street.
