Description

The Notman Photographic Archives include the work of other renowned photographers, such as Alexander Henderson, who came to Montreal from Scotland in 1855. He was primarily a landscape photographer, who travelled widely throughout the province of Quebec. In 1872, he began a three-year project to document the construction of the Intercolonial Railway, and eventually he became manager of the photography department of Canadian Pacific Railway. In addition to Henderson's photographs, numbering over 1,000 prints, the McCord Museum also possesses a collection of his family's papers dating back to 1760.
