Art in the alley

An artist eyes a potential customer as he approaches. In Old Quebec City, an alleyway between Rue de Buade and Rue Cook comes alive every day with local artists hoping to sell some of their work to visitors of the ancient city.

Around the corner on Rue Cook, portraitists and caricaturists lure passers-by to sit for a portrait. Street musicians and mimes do their thing along Rue Cook and adjacent Parc Montmorency, adding sights and sounds to the bustle of activity on the streets.

Tomorrow: The pinnacle of the city.
