View of the village of Deschambault on the northern banks of the St Lawrence River near Quebec in Canada. The village was built here in the 17th century on the main road which linked Montreal and Quebec City. In 1721, the heir to the seigneury of Deschambault, Joseph de Fleury asked for permission to built a church; work began in 1731 on a church and presbytery. A much larger church was built in Deschambault 100 years later. The Topogrphical collection from which this print comes was brought together by George III as an expression of British patriotism. This print is dated 1765, shortly before the American war for Independence.
