Pointe-Claire, then and nowDesmond Beauvais, a resident of Pointe-Claire and history buff, created the DVD "Then & Now", in which we can experience history by being transported in the past: there are about 150 old photos of important sites and places in Pointe-Claire juxtaposed to recent photographs of the same locations, with some background music.

This DVD is about 40 minutes. It is priced at $ 9.99. To order, write to: dezbeauvais@sympatico.ca.

Mr. Beauvais will donate all profits from the sale of the DVD to the completion of the book Pointe-Claire 1713-2013.
