    • Title: Sections for a pilaster for a bearing wall [?] for Notre-Dame de Montréal for the renovations of the 1860s
    • Dates of creation: contracted 20 September 1862

    Description:

    - The inscribed titles on two drawings by Théophile Fahrland indicate that the subjects are a "tambour" [drum] (AR1996:1001:232) and details for a "tambour" (AR1996:1001:231) for Notre-Dame de Montréal. The subject of these drawings is identified as a "bearing wall [?]", since the definition of a "drum" - a vertical wall, either circular or polygonal in plan, that carries a dome - apparently does not apply in this case (Art and Architecture Thesaurus). Further research is required to determine the subject of these drawings more precisely.
