Photograph by William Notman, a Scottish-Canadian photographer, of the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, outside the house of Sir John Rose, on Sherbourne Street, Montreal during his tour of Canada in 1860. From left to right the men who surround him are: Sir Edmund Head (1805-68), the Governor-General of Canada; Sir Christopher Teesdale (1833-93), the Prince’s equerry (incorrectly annotated on the reverse as Captain George Grey); the Prince’s governor the Hon. General Robert Bruce (1813-62); and Henry Pelham-Clinton, Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne (1811–64). Examples of this photograph exist in the Royal Collection (RCIN 2604079) and the National Portrait Gallery (NPG x128722). Some ink staining to the photograph (on the legs of three of the men, possibly to compensate for some overexposure?), numbered annotations on the mount and additional annotations to the verso, indicating the names of the sitters.
