For Canada Day: UK National Archives pictures of Canada

In commemoration of Canada Day, our former colonial masters have found some pictures of that place formerly known as their colony of Canada and very kindly shared them with us via flickr.

There are some great pieces here, including a tour by the then Price of Wales( the future Edward VIII) in 1919:

CO 1069-286-1

And domestic architecture in the 1920’s
CO 1069-290-2

An amazing find. The wholeCollection, imaginatively titled “Canada“, is up on Flickr.
