Niagara has a rich history. The celebration of the 1812 Bi-Centenary has brought a great surge of interest in early depictions of the Niagara area, and particularly of that natural wonder, “the Falls of Niagara”. Drawings by on-the-spot visitors (from as early as 270 years ago) were in great demand by European (and later U.S. & Canadian) publishers to produce coloured illustrations for travel books and journals or sets of engravings.Our collection includes:
- Pencil drawings from the 1820s!
- Unique lithographs of Niagara Falls, some hand-coloured, widely published in Europe, mid-1700s to 1800s.
- Trace the illustrations’ histories, from 16th century (Hennepin) through the 18th (Popple) and beyond.
- Niagara Falls featured in Canadian & U.S. pictorial, travel and lifestyle publications.
- Early survey & tourist maps of Niagara Falls and environs.
-‘Horseshoe Falls’, oil on panel of mysterious origin. -Aquatint etchings of LANDMARKS of Niagara. -Commemorating the original Brock’s Monument & Battle of Queenston Heights. -Portraits of allies, General Isaac Brock & Chief Thyandenega (Jospeh Brant); depiction of General Brock on horseback at Ft.
