Upon purchasing the Charon building, we asked the previous owners if they had any old photos of the dépanneur when it was open as a store.

Recently the son of the previous owner, Stéphane, came over to show us what he found.  A few photos of the “Dep” as a store in the 1970′s with a Cadillac parked in front.  And older black and white photos of it operating as an épicerie many years ago.  We will do some more research to find out more about these photos, but in the meantime, here a a few views of the past:
