The Quebec City Armoury

A building of great historical significance was destroyed leaving crumbling walls, smouldering ashes and a host of memories in the smoking ruins. The Quebec City Armoury (Le Manège Militaire de Quebec) burned Friday night, April 4, 2008. Only its skeletal remains stand stark against grey skies.
