Photographs from a Canadian voyage 1869-70. These delicate Albumen prints were in the possession of Dr Herbert Watney (1843-1932), the author of these images and specific locations is currently under investigation.

Watney met W. S. Rainsford working in a Mission in the East End of London in 1868, and as a result they arranged the emigration of 800 people to Canada. Together they crossed Canada with sparse equipment.
