William McFarlane Notman died in 1913, but the studio continued under his brothers, principally Charles Notman. This portrait of H. Song and family is one of the 55,000 portraits taken by William Notman's studio between 1910-1919. These images provide a remarkable visual resource for documenting Canadian history. They illustrate changing demographic trends in the country, and provide information on a range of subjects, such as clothing and hair styles.
