Every summer, just outside Pointe a Callière, Montreal enters a time warp and lands in the mid 18th century. Ambassadors of New France show the skills and talents of Montreal’s early European inhabitants and some of its indigenous peoples. Musicians, performances, craft-making, and plenty of food make this one of Montreal’s most beloved events of ambiance.

Sean Lapalme hit the street with camera in hand to capture the 2015 18th Century Public Market.
