A similar view to albumen print located at McCord Museum identifying the photographer as William Notman and dating circa 1900.
William Notman was a Scottish-Canadian photographer and businessman. His first important commission was the documentation of the construction of the Victoria Bridge across the St. Lawrence River . Notman's photographs of the construction of the bridge and scenes of Canada East and Canada West so pleased Queen Victoria that, according to family tradition, she named him "Photographer to the Queen." Notman also became well known for his photographs of Canadian scenes and life. From the beginning he and his photographers compiled a large stock of negatives loosely catalogued as “views.” The first Canadian photographer with an international reputation.
