Lac St. Denis, QC

1999 - A Visit to Lac St. Denis Lara Fitzgerald


July, 1999

Our thanks to Lara Fitzgerald for her recent trip to Lac St. Denis. The majority of these photographs show the current reamins of the station - in a way that has not been depicted to date.

A quick word of caution. If you were ever stationed at Lac St. Denis - and you have a tendency to get nostalgic - you may not want to look at these photos. Why - you may ask? Mainly because of the fact that these photos show a great deal of vandalism and destruction of what was once a proud unit.

Life carries on. It is unfortunate that someone did not have the forsight to convert Lac St. Denis into a tourist attraction or a museum of sorts.

You will notice that quite a few of these photos could use some identification. If you happen to recognize anything and you can provide a more detailed description - please send us an email message and we will update the detail accordingly.
