The Capital History Canada Ethos

Canada is much more than just landscapes. We're talking about the people, and the culture. Our collections dig deep into Canada's history, and represent bygone slices of Canadian life.

The framed images presented span the years 1849-1949. As we know, times and mores have changed, and as such many of the items here are presented ironically - you'll know which ones.

In every era advertising artwork has been created by some of Canada's best artists, including members of the Group of Seven. What we're presenting here is more than a collection vintage ads, broadsides and mag covers, but what we consider to be great art.

These posters are reproductions. Great care has been taken to make the posters perfectly legible, plus to pump up the colours to their original glory. Many more poster series and themes will be made available starting in early '22 - stay tuned!
