History teachers take note! Here is one Volume 3 of my favourite resources for teaching Canadian History.

Dr. C. W. Jefferys was one of Canada's foremost historical artists and his three-volume "Picture Gallery of Canadian History" is probably his best-known achievement. His hundreds of carefully researched pictures of artifacts, people, places and episodes from Canadian history provide a "treasure house of information about this country's past."

Vol.1 - Discovery to 1900
Vol.2 - 1763 to 1830
Vol.3 - 1839 to 1900
