Description: Boisbriand, the Senneville estate of Edward Seaborne Clouston, General Manager of the Bank of Montreal. The estate house was built by the corporate lawyer and third Prime Minister of Canada, Sir John Joseph Caldwell Abbott. Abbott had purchased the estate lands in 1865 and eventually commissioned the Montreal architect Edward Maxwell to design the house. Following Abbott's death in 1892 Clouston purchased the estate as his country home. Gwendolen Marjorie Howard was a close friend with Clouston's two daughters, Osla and Marjory. As is evidenced by numerous photographs in the collection, she visited the Cloustons at Boisbriand on many occasions during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
