Young Canada

The National Archives UK released our baby photos.

For some, birthdays are an ominous reminder of the years slipping by. But for others they are a chance to ponder said years and see how far you’ve come. The latter is more psychologically healthy, so how better to reflect on Canada’s short but colourful history than perusing some black-and-white photography? This collection of pictures from the UK’s National Archives contains some some seriously cool scenes from before and after the British North America Act. Happy Birthday Canada. Here’s to 145 more years.
