I scouted for the location of this celebratory winter scene many times, with no success. As it turned out I was misled by some information in a previous book about Notman. Long after I had given up I showed the photo to Nora Hague at the Notman Photographic Archives and she instantly told me where to look. It was a challenge to get my equipment up to the very top of Peel Street after a big January snowfall, but in the end, after days of scouting and hours in the cold, I was able to re-photograph one of my favorite Notman images.
