Long acknowledged as the giant of nineteenth-century Canadian photography, William Notman - along with his sons and protégées - created perhaps the most vital photographic studio of his day, a venture that spanned almost sixty years and an entire continent. As the authors clearly demonstrate in this stunning new book, Notman's ambition did not expire at the Canadian border but continued far into the United States; and his photographs chronicled not only the nineteenth century but extended well into the twentieth.
