Photo #8 - Where am I? What do I symbolize? Who makes me?

Bethann Merkle, Shirley Nadeau and Danielle Burns have been scouting out people, places and objects around the city for you to try and identify over the summer months. Every week, we’ll print a mystery photo and your mission is to tell us the location and  answer the questions about the photo. 
The winning answer, written in your own words (maximum 100 words -- be as creative as you like), will be published in the Wednesday, August 7, 2013, issue. The deadline for submissions is no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 2.

Submit your answers by e-mail to [email protected] , or mail it to the MYSTERY PHOTO CONTEST, ℅ Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph, 1040, avenue Belvédère, Suite 218, Québec, QC, G1S 3G3, or fax it to 418 650-5172. Include your name, address, telephone number and an email address (if you have one).
Weekly winners will have their subscriptions extended  by one month, FREE of charge, or, if not currently a QCT subscriber, will receive a FREE one-month subscription. If more than one correct answer is submitted, a random draw will be held to determine the winner. At the end of the summer all the correct weekly answers will go into a hat for a draw and the winner will receive a year’s FREE subscription to the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph.

Here is Annick’s winning answer: “The mystery photo is part of the fresco on the Gabrielle-Roy Library on rue du Roi. It was made for the 20th anniversary of the library. The fresco represents important facts of literature and the history of public libraries in Quebec. We can see the Pont de l'Île in the background. In front, we can see a crystal ball with the Château Frontenac. Instead of snow, there are letters that represent  a ‘snow storm’ of letters from Quebec City literature.”
