The Canadian Museum of History is presenting an exhibition on William Notman from November 23, 2018 – April 14, 2019. Quoting from their website:

Experience 19th century Canada through the lens of a pioneer of photography. See the iconic images produced by William Notman (1826–1891), the first Canadian photographer to gain an international reputation.

Introducing a modern approach to photography, Notman created some of our most stunning windows onto the past. Through 300 vintage prints and objects from the McCord Museum, this exhibition presents a comprehensive portrait of Victorian Canada and celebrates the innovation and artistry of the man who captured it.

Details on how to register for a tour of the exhibition, lead by Notman experts, can be found here.
