Sketchbook 29/07/09


I ventured back to the St.Lawrence Market to get another round of sketching in and I chose this staircase area mainly because it had available seating by the railing. However, after finishing this drawing, I remembered my sister telling me how she went on a ghost tour a few years back during halloween in which they visited famous downtown sites that were supposedly haunted.
As the story goes, the guide took them to the Market, and lead them to a pit stop in the basement via one of these flights of stairs (there are 4 and this image is of the south west one) As my sister went down, her vision got blurry and she felt a brief chill run through her.
After the pit stop, the guide asked everyone in the group if they felt anything weird as they went down the stairs. My sister didn't raise her hand but another girl did and mentioned the exact same feelings my sister experienced. The guide informed her that that was a ghost passing through her... wowzer! What a great way to start a ghost tour.
