How old is the house ? ... I bet something around 1750 right? ...
And the building over St-john's picture is the Mauvide Genest manor on Île D'orléans island built in 1734 and also filled by many antiques rugs,plates, paints... very interresting place I had the honor to visit. It was the manor of a Surgeon coming in New-France to live and then he built that building.
By the way, I was just Streetviewing St-john this night, I was very surprised how there was some beautifull architecture there! ... It's rly an underestimated city ( and most of the Maritimes cities I would say ) ... Anyway... I'm a personal fan of british looking architecture, and thats a beautifull example
... you can be proud of your city.
