Description:
A professional portrait of an unidentified male teacher, professor, principal or head master and an unidentified female graduates taken by the Toronto, Ontario photography studio of Edy Brothers. The "teacher" is standing with one hand clasped over the other and the female graduate, wearing a long belted dress under her graduate robe is holding her diploma in one hand.
Notes:
Although there are no clues on this card mounted portrait other than the photographer's studio of Edy Brothers, Toronto, the catalogue card in the London Public Library's Photograph Collection lists this unidentified photograph under male portraits and the sub-heading is: "Old London Personalities." This implies the unidentified gentleman was an early inhabitant of London. From this portrait we can infer that he may have played an important role in the field of education in London and elsewhere.
The book: "The Ontario Photographer's List, 1851-1900" lists Edy Brothers in Toronto in the year 1890 and thus given the probable date this portrait
was taken.
The geographical location on the map shows the approximate location of 92 Yonge Street, Toronto, the address of the photography studio.
