A watercolour from “Rapport du du Père Paradis”, published in 1884.
Père Paradis was probably the first to boast about the merits and the beauty of Abitibi-Témiscamingue. In 1884, he published a report that is considered a national treasure today, as much for the historical value, the lyrical surges and the watercolours showing mystical locations of the region it showed.”
