Bench of the Week (13)
These benches are located at the edge of the National Historic Site of the Plains of Abraham at the Upper Old City of Quebec City, PQ.
The plains are named after Abraham Martin, known as "the Scot," (1589-1664), a fisherman and river pilot, who brought his animals to graze there as he owned land near the area of the current park.
More than half of the buildings in Old Quebec (including the ones in the photo) date back to pre-1850, and are in one of the 11 architectural styles.
RuneE of Visual Norway originated Bench of the Week as an informal meme. Please visit his site for his spectacular photos of his bench location today.
Other participants this week are:
Phoenix C of Sylvan Muse
Gerald England of Ackworth Born, Gone West
Malyss has a lovely bench.
David Crammer of Education of a Pulp Writer has a seaside bench.
Steve Gallow has joined this week with a bench at Long Lake.
