Canadian Images

Here we have another view of St. Onuphrius from above as we start departing the Museum's Canada Hall. 

Along with more of the large scale photographs of scenes across Canada.

The ramp leads down to the central hub, with another view of Canada in map form on the floor below.

The corridor leading out features more of the scenes of Canada that I showed coming in, a combination of mirrored surface and white overlay to show a scene. This is the Carleton Martello Tower in New Brunswick.

And this is Cape Spear in Newfoundland and Labrador, the easternmost point in North America, excluding Greenland. I conclude this visit to the Museum of History tomorrow.


  1. St. Onuphrius is a quaint looking wooden church.

  2. Some great shots here William.
    I like the three skiers and the family walking the most.

  3. Father and son in the field is my fav.

  4. We indeed live in a vast and varied country. How Alex Trebek could ever have left it is beyond me, and taken out the citizenship of the armed republic to the south. People claim to be mourning the death of a Canadian but that sounds strange to me. That would be like having mourned JohnTurner as a great Englishman since he was born there.

  5. @Rosemary: yes, and pretty.

    @Italiafinlandia: so do I.

    @Gemel: they're good.

    @Iris: it's a good one.

    @David: well said.

  6. ...images of a diverse country!

  7. Nice photos. I remember how much I loved cross country skiing and miss it even till today. :-)

  8. Like old farms, they are ubiquitous.
    The old churches: you wondered how many people needed!

  9. You have given us a great tour!

  10. I appreciated your tour and I'm sure there's more for another round of posts.

  11. Canada is such a large country, it isn't easy to grasp how expansive Canada is.

  12. Ah.... one of my favourite places, Cape Spear.

  13. That's a lovely view of the Canadian map.

  14. Those large scale photos in your last 2 posts are great!!

  15. Enjoyed seeing all the pictures.

  16. @Tom: quite diverse.

    @Francisco: thank you.

    @DJan: it's been awhile since I've done cross country skiing.

    @Jennifer: thank you!

    @RedPat: a pleasure doing so.

    @Red: oh, no doubt.

    @Maywyn: I do think that the sheer size of the country is one of the things that defines us as Canadians.

    @Shammickite: I hope to see it for myself someday. Newfoundland and Labrador is one place I've never been to.

    @Bill: I think so!

    @Jenn: thank you!

    @Marleen: quite so.

    @Joanne: thanks!

    @Happyone: and I enjoyed showing them.

  17. The treatment of the hallway with the images is interesting. And I love St. Onuphrius.

  18. Love the scenes of Canada. My sis lives in Kelowna, B.C. and it is beautiful there

    1. I'd love to see that area someday. I've never been in Kelowna. The only drawback is that it's close to the residence of a former relative I never want to speak to again.

  19. The large scale photos of Canadian life are excellent William, good to see ✨
