Next week my daughter and I are headed to Montreal and are definitely planning to visit St. Joseph's Oratory while we're there. My mother showed me this picture of a visit made to the Oratory by Maria von Trapp and her family back in 1946.
"Maria and the children are seen leaving Brother Andre's Chapel following mass. The little boy beside Baroness von Trapp is Johannes, her youngest son and now president of the family business in Stowe."
You can also notice Fr. Franz Wasner (left in the photo) who was their personal chaplain and musical director. (The film changed him into Max Detweiler.) You'll also notice that the family are wearing their performing outfits.

updates on child actors from film, etc)
