Ben Turner

Ben Turner was the art director at The Standard, which evolved into Weekend Magazine in Montreal. Here are a couple of illustrations that he did for Weekend.

This illustration was done in 1953, when Ben spent the winter at Metis Beach. Some local men posed for this picture.

The models for this illustration were Jean Thompson and a man from the village of Les Boules.

Campbells and Turriffs are models here.

This is a duo-tone illustration, done with only black and red paint. It was less costly to print than full colour. Harold Astle and his son Timothy posed.
