Magic Lantern Slide

HiVu PhotosAt the right is a sample of the images (HiVu #237 c1890) available in our Canada photos gallery from the Percival Lawton Spencer Collection. This particular slide from the 1870's shows a paddle steamer used on the Great Lakes. This slide from the Canada Photo Gallery is listed as 'Beaumaris steamship Muskoka' the place probably being "Muskoka" and the ship's name "Beaumaris." Maybe the building behind the ship is the Beaumaris Hotel in the settlement of Beaumaris in the Muskoka District of Ontario? It was a ferry for the Victorian families who enjoyed leaving the smog and coal dust of the cities to "take the air" in cottage country. It is typical of the many glass lantern slides in our Canada Photo Gallery. For a complete text listing of more than 2,300 slides, please view our Alphabetical Archival Listing.
