Category: built heritage / artistic heritage This photo is heritage because it is an old statue that I've only seen at this church. The church was built in the 1960s so I'm guessing that they put this statue there at the same time. I think and feel that she's feeling sad. Waiting for something, thinking of something bad that she did or praying to God! This is Our Lady of Pompei Church. Rosaria Panza, Paul VI High School, 2012.

Category: built heritage This photo is of a front of Our Lady of Pompei Church in Montreal. It is part of Montreal's heritage because it was built in the 1960s and has been part of the community for a long time. The reflections on the doors give it a sense as though people have passed away. I can feel the pain that went through this church. When looking into the reflection of the glass, it feels as there is another world different from our world. David Wilkinson, Paul VI High School, 2012.

Category: built heritage This photo is the fence surrounding Our Lady of Pompei church in Montreal. The church is heritage because it was built in the 60s, so the fence is very old and rusted. What makes the fence unique is the way it looks and you will never see a fence like it anywhere. Jessy Gardner, Paul VI High School, 2012.

There was a time, not too long ago, when you could clearly identify a car by the shape of its headlights. Many warm evenings were spent on our front porch playing the “Car Call-out game”, to see who could first call-out the make, model, and year of passing cars. “There goes a ’67 Corsair…a ’69 Skylark…a ’74 Monte Carlo”. In those days you could almost instantly shout out a car’s make and model. As in the past, our cars were designed with much more flair and pride in workmanship, giving each car a distinct character.
