Lobby of Château Albert and A Visit by a Travelling Salesman

Following the 1870s, the advent of the railroad greatly favored the construction of hotels in many Acadians communities.Travellers, tourists and travelling salesmen are then more frequently seen in Acadian villages.

A visit from a travelling salesman is not only eagerly awaited by the storekeeper, it is appreciated by the neighborhood folk who like to look at the last novelties and hear the news from abroad.
