Main Street, Lille, ca. 1910


The twin towers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church dominate the center of this view of Main Street, Lille, a farming village in the St. John Valley town of Grand Isle.

Trumpeting angels atop the towers proclaim the glory of this landmark church completed in 1910 from designs by architect Theodore Daoust of Montreal.

The two structures at the right are the Morneault House and the general store.

One of the girls in the photograph is Bernette Albert of Madawaska.
