Encouraged by the public reception and the brisk sales of variously sized copies of the "Skating Carnival" composite produced in 1870, Notman began to include composites as part of his regular service to customers. In the next five years alone, his Montreal studio produced several dozen composites with subjects as widely diverse as the military, families, schools, actors, clergymen and sports groups including snowshoeing, rowing, camping, skating, lacrosse, football and cricket.
