Jeu de Cartes Québecois

Various characters in the history of Québec. I really like the nun. The information leaflet says that in 1685, Jacques de Meulles paid his soldiers in Québec with playing cards, because money wasn't arriving from France for their salaries. Playing cards became the local currency for a time after that.

Cards can be ordered directly from the publisher:
C.P 702, Outremont (Qué) H2V 4N6
