Photographer's Note

This picture was taken at the Quebecer Village of long ago. The lady was giving the last touch on her precious product – the homemade soap.

It seems that the homemade soap is the best one for whitening and removing spots from clothes. And it is ecological! There are people who still make it, at least in rural areas. This tradition comes from the time of pioneers.

"When the spring arrived and the maple season had finished, when the days became warmer and the nights were still cold, it was time for housewives to make their own soap."

Here we have a history capsule by Bibiane Grenier (in French).
