This year marks the 150th anniversary of the first photograph ever taken by a Canadian. In honour of this event, Canada Post Corporation is issuing four se tenant commemorative stamps featuring trailblazing Canadian photographers: William Notman (1826-1891); Alexander Henderson (1831-1913); Jules-Ernest Livernois (1851-1933); and W. Hanson Boorne (1859-1945). These pioneering professionals left a legacy of photographs that provide documentary information about Canada's growth and development, as well as evidence of photography's technical and artistic evolution. Designed by Montreal designers Tom Yakobina and Jean Morin, each stamp features a portrait of the photographer along with a photograph characteristic of his work. The photographs are reproduced with the permission of the McCord Museum and the Musée du Séminaire de Québec for William Notman; the Provincial Archives of Quebec and Victor Livernois for Jules-Ernest Livernois; the McCord Museum and National Archives for Alexander Henderson; and the McCord Museum for William Hanson Boorne.
