About the Poster: The Canadian Illustrated News was a weekly Canadian illustrated magazine published in Montreal from 1869 to 1883. It was published by George Desbarats. The magazine was notable for being the first in the world to consistently produce photographs at a successful rate
This small engraving of the Port of Montreal is full of detail - the Basilica, the fishermen, a trawler, people on the shore ... Vintage ephemera at it's very best!
Professionally matted in an antiqued gray mat, this engraving is ready to frame. A perfect gift for a historian!
