Facing the Street

A collection of photographs displayed in situ and in a cafe

Presented by The Swamp Ward & Inner Harbour History Project

June 5-30, 2018

in Kingston, ON

Swamp Ward residents and people from elsewhere interested in photography, art, and place will be excited to experience this exhibit curated by Chris Miner and Laura Murray, and funded by the City of Kingston Heritage Fund.

Twenty large-scale black and white photographs taken by, preserved by, and featuring residents of the area between the 1890s and 1960s will be mounted outdoors around the neighbourhood at the locations they were taken (between Stephen and Queen, Patrick and Bagot).

More portraits with captions will appear in The Elm Café at Montreal and Charles providing information about those they portray, as shared in oral history interviews and revealed by archival sources.

A map of all locations will be located in the centre of McBurney (Skeleton) Park, at the Heritage Resource Centre in City Hall, on flyers available at The Elm Café, and on swampwardhistory.com.

The Elm Café, at 303 Montreal Street, is open 7am-5pm Tuesday-Friday, and 8am-3pm Saturday-Sunday.
