St. Ansgar's Lutheran Church - Montreal
Historical Images & Documents - 6

These photos were provided by Linda Tae. We can assume all (or nearly all) the photos are taken by the Holobows or with their camera. These photos were given to Linda Tae by Marian Holobow. Subsequent to the initial posting of these photos, Jette Blair, together with Henrik Langer, have provided information on a number of the photos. If you have anything to add, please write to me. Each photo is numbered, to make it easier for you to write me at with the information.

Also, the original scans of these photos are in fairly high resolution. This allows me to pull up close-up shots of various people, on demand. If you have any requests for these closeups, let me know (You must be a member or friend of the Saint-Ansgar's community).
