These three press photos are from the photography archive (750,000 images in total) of the Globe and Mail. A good slice of our country’s history can be found therein. 25,000 pictures will go to the  Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada, and the remainder will be distributed to other institutions. As decades pass, these photos will become ever more valuable.
