      The collection consists of three prints featuring coloured illustrations of the Niagara area. Two of the prints feature illustrations of Niagara Falls and one of the Upper Canada Agricultural Association Exhibition at Niagara. The first print of Niagara Falls features the Horseshoe Falls and is dated 1833. The picture is titled “Cataracte (Chute du Niagara)”. Below the title “E.Guerin dir” is written. The second print features the American and Horseshoe Falls from Prospect Point. It is taken from a publication, and there is text written on the reverse side and below the print, about Niagara Falls. The text at the top of the page reads “Scenes in Many Lands”, and on the reverse “Voyages and Travels”. There is no date. The third print features an illustration of the Upper Canada Agricultural Association Exhibition at Niagara. There is an accompanying article on the Exhibition. The clipping is taken from The Illustrated London News, with a handwritten date of December 14, 1850. The sketch is by Mr. G.F. Price of Toronto, and shows the Exhibition ground with part of the town of Niagara in the distance.
