According to this 1948 film, the hills and valleys of the Eastern Townships look much the same as the rest of Quebec, but their history and people are quite different. In the film, an English farmer describes how his ancestors, United Empire Loyalists, first cleared the woods and stony slopes. A French farmer tells what his people have added to the life of the area. By 1948, factory towns, farms and the world's largest asbestos mines were features of a prosperous region "developed by two peoples working together."
