Great day yesterday at the library. I found the map I was looking for!
Year 1879 map
I was looking for a historical map of Cheval Blanc Rapids.
I posted a link to it at the Wikipedia article I started on Cheval Blanc [link]
It is under external links.
I hope to use this to help preserve the land from further housing development.
There is little natural space left on the west island of Montreal.
The rock walls that still exist and CANT BE easily ERASED BY DEVELOPERS, match the historical map.
Hopefully Quebec historical society will perceive the scientific validity to my evidence and judge the area historically significant enough to protect like they protect Cap St Jacques .
But as there are no buildings , just walls , it may not be significant enough to warrant Government protection.
