The photograph, taken in 2008 in Mount Royal Park, Montreal, Quebec, Canada takes us back to the 1800s. The caleche ride in 2008 could have been a study for the 1861 painting of the popular Dutch-Canadian painter, Cornelius Kreighoff. The photo captures the winter landscape and Montreal´s desire to preserve history and recreate the past.
