Keys to History

Another composite commissioned by The Travellers Insurance Company of Hartford, Connecticut, this shows twelve well-know American authoresses whose names appear around the outside of the circular print. The composite, which was created in Montreal from photographs taken by Notman in Boston, has a background made up of parts of four photographs of George Stephen's house on Drummond Street in Montreal. Today it houses the Mount Stephen Club.
