The Calèche Driver

A tongue-in-cheek archival film documenting a day in the life of a veteran horse-drawn carriage driver. Though the tourists that flock to the historic avenues of the Old City have changed considerably, the Old World charm of Québec City is timeless.

    “@sixam--> I asked our collection curator and this is what he said: The “documentaries” from the 1950s were all staged so that it would be easier to film. The filmmakers probably paid the driver to drive people around.” — kruscito, 9 Sep 2015
