William Leitch and family, c 1900.

So here is a picture of my great grandparents.  In the shot are William Christopher Leitch, his wife Mary Jane Cashion, their daughter Jean Nicholas Leitch, and their sons William Clair and Hugh James (baby) Leitch.  William was a contractor in Montreal.  He and his company Laurin and Leitch had numerous contracts with municipalities on the island for the construction of sewers.  Whenever a sewer line dies in the city I always wonder if it was built by his company (pre 1924).
