Thursday, April 28th - The wonder of pictures

Woke up bright and early this morning and went to Montreal with my students for the book launch, Quebec Roots:The Place Where We Live. Before the book launch we visited the McCord Museum and saw this amazing exhibition by Andre Cornellier. It's a panorama of Montreal inspired by Wm. Notman and Son's panorama which was done 100 years before. Cornellier took approximately 5000 photos, 1300 of which make this panorama.
In the afternoon, the students got to see another amazing piece of work - their own chapter in the book. It was a long but gratifying day.

That is quite an amazing piece of work. I like the connection between this vintage contribution to the documentation of Quebec history and your students' modern contribution.
