In summer and winter, John Lawley loved to paint the cabstands at Mount Royal. Always colourful, always the site of activity, the Mount Royal cabstands feature in the work of many Quebec based painters. They are as iconic in that province as the Parliament Buildings are in the City of Ottawa. He has captured them here in autumn, yellow leaves litter the ground and hang brightly from the trees that still shade the cabs. With a lovely impressionist feeling, the spokes of the cab’s wheels and the awnings over the cabs themselves are highlighted in the same yellow, tying the whole scene nicely together.
