Terrapin Tower, Horse Shoe Falls', 1860
Description
Terrapin Tower, Horse Shoe Falls', 1860. A photograph of the Terrapin Tower at the crest of the Horse Shoe Falls, Niagara, taken by William McFarlane Notman (1826-1891) in the winter during the Royal Visit to Canada of Albert, Prince of Wales, the future Edward VII (1841-1910). The Terrapin Tower was built in 1833 and stood in this location for about fifty years before being demolished. William McFarlane Notman was born in Scotland but emigrated to Canada in 1856. He opened a photographic studio in Montreal and later established a successful chain of studios across Canada with branches in Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax. Notman was the official Canadian photographer to Queen Victoria (1819-1901). His work forms an unrivalled record of nineteenth cantury Canadian life, including portraits, landscapes and elaborate studio-based genre scenes of Native Amerians, hunters and trappers. ©SSPL/National Media Museum
