When they were building it, some of the cynics referred to the grandiose building that was to be Ste-Foy City Hall as the “Taj Mahal.” It really was on an over-the-top building just to house the mayor and his court. And the irony is that it wasn’t too many years later that all the smaller municipalities were merged with Quebec City and city governance moved, principally into the Quebec City Hall.
I’m not sure what the function of the building is these days but one thing it does is to keep the rain off a couple of beautiful Chinese statues. It’s just as unclear why these statues exist in Quebec City but our group took advantage of them to do some sketching during yet another rainy day. It was a fun days and I hope you like my result.
