Royal Commonwealth Society

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This print shows an indigenous woman standing on a hillside, with tepees in the distance. It is from a small collection of photographs of Canada presented to the Royal Colonial Institute in 1912 by the British writer Mary Frances Alicia Tench. The photographs may have been taken during a world tour, since Tench also donated images of India and the West Indies at the same time. Little is known of Tench’s life, but she wrote novels and short fiction for children during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>See Janus record <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''>here</a></p>
