Clyde River, HistoryPin 2As 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:

  1. Find a photo from your historical research or from history more broadly.
  2. Go to where the photo was taken.
  3. 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.)
  4. Either a) send a photo of the photo or b) point out the URL to niche@uwo.ca . 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!
Have fun!
