Thanks Marie, for the above recent photo. This line enters my head -

"My priests they will put flowers there"

Hi Brucester,
I thought you might be interested in this comment

and the whole thread too.

Maybe LC's recording is still lurking somewhere hidden in his other effects just waiting to see the light :)

Cohen Plaque in small hamlet Maberly, Ont. Canada

Post by KarenP »

Leonard's Cohen's great grandparents and grandfather settled in Maberly, Ontario, Canada, prior to moving to Montreal, Quebec, Canada. A couple of months ago we erected a plaque in their memory. If you can see it here somewhere, you can read the sign if you enlarge the .jpg https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vp7aMe ... sp=sharing
