Across The Country

Here we have more of the images in the corridor leading to the Canada History Hall. The Caribou Monument in St. John's, Newfoundland, pays tribute to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, nearly wiped out on a single morning in the First World War.

This is the provincial legislature in Victoria, British Columbia.

The Underground Railroad Monument is in Windsor, Ontario.

Here is the First Nations University of Canada campus in Saskatchewan.

This lighthouse is in Prince Edward Island.

Pier 21 in Halifax was the point of entry for many new immigrants. Now a national museum of immigration is to be found here.

And finally, a monument to the Metis leader Louis Riel is in Manitoba. Tomorrow we start looking inside the Canada History Hall.


  1. This style to present is really, really fascinating.
    I once was in a museum of immigration (Bremen, if I remember right) - very interesting.

  2. They really are incredible. I love the way the light changes them, plus the shadows, different angles would totally change each of them depending on the light hitting them, fascinating.

  3. I like the way these images are presented.

  4. Hello,
    A lovely exhibit and display! Take care, enjoy your day! Have a great new week!

  5. I don't remember this this, but it has been quite awhile since we did the whole tour. Last time, we were happy to just see the Neanderthals.

  6. ...we have many underground railroad station, but those in Canada were so important.

  7. Regarding your first photo, I have visited the Caribou monument at Beaumont Hamel in France. A tragic loss.

  8. That is a very interesting looking Saskatchewan university, among others.

  9. These are so well done, William!

  10. Interesting exhibits from the museum. Have a great day.

  11. Fascinating and lovely exhibit.
