Paul Caron was primarily known as an illustrator in the employ of La Presse and The Montreal Star. His creative work beyond his employ are works of historical interest, a body of urban compositions of Montreal and high quality compositions like the one offered here illustrating the remains of Fort Senneville, just west of Montreal, off the island, near the rapids at Ste. Anne. The origins of the structure date back to 17th century New France.
