Biography synopsis
Madame Gagné ran a photographic studio on Rue St. Laurent in Montreal in the early 1890s and may have found a niche market in producing photographic portraits for the area's Chinese community. She was probably married to Édouard Gagné, another Montreal photographer of the era. The McCord Museum in Montreal holds some of Gagné's work.
