We tend to Google for information on photography and cameras. While this approach is informative and helpful, don’t forget the other local resources in your pursuit of photographic history such as libraries, museums and archives both city, provincial, federal, and educational.
Toronto Archives is one such resource. It has a rich collection of images related to Toronto photographic history in its fonds. The Turofsky brothers who operated out of the Alexandria Studios donated many of their negatives and prints to the archives’ fonds.
The example at left is one such photo placed online for the pleasure of all.
