Joseph-Édouard Cauchon was a journalist, businessman, and politician in the middle years of the nineteenth-century. He held a variety of portfolios at the federal, provincial and municipal levels. In 1877 to 1882, Cauchon was appointed the third Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba, replacing the retiring Alexander Morris.
William Notman (1826-1891) was a Canadian photographer and businessman. Notman was born in Paisley, Scotland in 1826, the same year in which photography was born in France. William Notman moved to Montreal in 1856. An amateur photographer, he quickly established a flourishing professional photography studio on Bleury Street. Notman's reputation and business grew over the next three decades, the first Canadian photographer with an international reputation.
