Edmond Brosseau portrait

Depicts a portrait of Edmond Brosseau. Edmond Brosseau farmed in St. Albert from 1873 and also established a grocery and dry goods store that was sold in 1900 to Cheri Hébert and Fleuri Perron, St. Albert's first two mayors. Brosseau was also the builder of the granary in St. Albert. Edmond Brosseau (1825-1917) was born in Lapraire near Montreal and died in St. Paul-Minneapolis. He married Métis Julie L'Hirondelle in St. Albert in 1876 and they had eight children. Later he moved to build a house south of Edmonton on the North Saskatchewan River which soon became a hamlet known as Brosseau, where Edmond is buried.
