Re: Tessier plaque on the Royal Bank

Hi Richard,

I have the Urbain Tessier biography and it clearly states that the plaque was on the ROYAL bank. My husband and I went to Montreal on our honeymoon in 1984, and at that time we looked around for that bank, thinking it might still be there. I wanted so much to take a picture of that plaque, since I was there. We stopped in at the Royal Bank (going by the directions in the biography) and talked to a nice gentleman there. I asked him about the plaque and he asked one of the older employees there about it. We were told that the bank the plaque was on had been demolished years ago. What a disappointment! Since I don't expect to ever get to Montreal again, I was hoping someone had a picture of it they could send me. Someone told me there is a picture of it somewhere.

Thanks so much for your reply. If you ever come across the picture, I'd appreciate it if you could send it to me in an attachment to the e-mail.
