Mt. Tremblant, Quebec (29o below)
Gelatin silver print
14 1/4 x 11 1/4 in (photo) 19 3/4 x 15 3/4 in (mount)
Private collection of George Pek
In the autobiography of Victor Keppler Man + Camera (1970), it mentions that Victor and his wife Jo left New York State into Canada on a road trip in late October 1929. Somewhere between Quebec City and Montreal they heard of the NY stock market crash. I would guess the photo was taken during this trip, because of the title of the photograph has a double meaning referring to year & temperature QUEBEC (29 BELOW!) on reverse, and MT. TREMBLANT, QUEBEC (29 degrees BELOW) on front.
