The Black Whale

 

The Black Whale
This sober building was used to make handicrafts. Wilson Boyle built it in 1930 for the Percé Handicraft Committee, an Anglophone association of Percé. The main feature of this rectangular structure with clinker-built board siding is its two-sloped roof with both dished and cambered counter-drips covered with cedar shingles. Another of its unique architectural characteristics is the amazing portico comprising a central joint-box window-frame door, an upper cambered transom board and two lateral windows.
