As Canadian historical researchers travel around the country this summer, we thought it would be fun to encourage you to think about Canada’s visual history.
Just four easy steps:
- Find a photo from your historical research or from history more broadly.
- Go to where the photo was taken.
- Either a) take a photo of the photo there (à la DearPhotograph.com) or b) incorporate the photo intoHistoryPin.com (see Josh MacFadyen’s cool photo of rural PEI or the Saskatchewan Multitype Digitization Initiative as examples.)
- Either a) send a photo of the photo or b) point out the URL to firstname.lastname@example.org . Write a caption to go along with it.
We’ll post some of the best photos & descriptions as the summer goes along & give out book prizes for the very best on 3 September.
No, the photos don’t have to be about environmental history!
Or from Canada!
Void where prohibited!
