In addition to architecture, I like to photograph the various memorial and biographical plaques and monuments that I encounter during my travels across Canada. Note that this collection does not include cemetery markers. A few of these images have been digitally modified to increase their legibility.

Some of these individuals are very prominent, National figures, while others are rather much more local in interest or reputation. The amount of biographical information available varies widely. Coverage is particularly thorough for Alberta, New Brunswick, and some parts of Nova Scotia. This collection will be updated irregularly as I travel and photograph new plaques and monuments for my collection.

Please note that I am NOT actively researching any of these individuals or families, and so I am unable to do look-ups or provide any additional information on the persons listed here.
