Lieutenant-Commander Eric Salvail, commander of Naval Reserve headquarters in Quebec City, André Kirouac, director of the Musée Naval de Québec, Stéphan La Roche, general manager of the MCQ, and Robert Mercure, general manager of the Château Frontenac, gather in front of the London telephone booths installed in the Musée de la Civilisation du Québec.

An unusual new exhibit opened on June 21 at the Musée de la Civilisation du Québec (MCQ) on Rue Dalhousie. All one could see at first were three red telephone booths (cabines in French), similar to those found in London, England, with an image of a British bulldog sitting beside them.
