Photographer's Note

Visit of Grosse-Ile, in front of Montmagny (Quebec, Canada). This isolated place was of use as about forty to the immigrants coming from Irland afterward from Europe generally, all the boats must be disinfected as well as the passengers. The disease of the typhoid, the plague etc. were present on these boats. The immigrants avoided Ireland because of a big famine. All these places demonstrate well the history of these Irish immigrants.
