QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC — Quebec City‘s Saint-Jean district is known for its small-business shops, so it seems fitting that young Milo Albernhe would choose here to set up his lemonade stand.
Milo sells a cup of his delicious drink for 50 cents, a refreshing treat in a city that has had some wonderfully hot days this summer.
His lemonade stand also demonstrates the pleasant feel of Quebec’s provincial capital. How often do you see a scene like this in a big city?
The Saint-Jean area is in the trendy new part of the city, away from the tourist-filled walls that date to the 17th century. Running along Rue Saint-Jean, the neighbourhood features some excellent shops — including J.A. Moisan, the oldest grocery story in North America, dating to 1871, and a chocolate museum. It’s also the area where the city’s gay community congregates.
Next time you’re in Quebec, take a stroll down this neighbourhood to see what you discover. With any luck, Milo will be there with his warm smile and cold drinks (when school’s out, of course).
This photo was taken with a Nikon D7000, using a 35mm portrait lens and set at f8.
