Photographer's Note

Street in Old Quebec. To the left, a partial glimpse of the Ursuline Convent.

Known in English as the School of the Ursulines, the Ecole des Ursulines is among North America's oldest schools. Still operating as a private girls school, it was founded in 1639 by French nun Marie de l'Incarnation and a laywoman named Marie-Madeline de Chauvigny de la Peltrie. This was also the beginning of the Ursuline order in New France.
