Rue Petit Champlain, Quebec City

Rue du Petit Champlain    Rue du Petit Champlain

The covered with snow rue du Petit-Champlain street is bustling with strollers and shoppers during Christmas time in the old Quebec City. During the French Regime, craftsmen worked in shops along rue du Petit-Champlain, where they lived with their families. In the 19th century, working-class Irish families, whose major breadwinners worked at the docks or in the ship-building trade, made their homes here. Today, dozens of artists’ workshops and boutiques line this historical street.
