The town of Sainte-Christine, Québec, lies just west of Québec City along the north shore of the St.Lawrence River. The highway into and out of town is sometimes called “le chemin du Roy,” or the King’s Road. It was Canada’s first carriageway and it was opened in 1734 as a link between Québec City and Montréal. Blessed by a river to provide power, Sainte-Christine was an early industrial town and it was here that Gwyllyn Samuel Newton Ford spent the early years of his life.
