Tea at the McCord series 2014-2015

Harry Sutcliffe: A Life in Postcards

tea at the mccord - sutcliffe

Tuesday, December 2, 2014, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
In French with a period of questions in French and English
J.A. Bombardier Theatre

With Hélène Samson, Ph.D., Curator, Notman Photographic Archives

In conjunction with the McGill College exhibition Harry Sutcliffe - Strolling Through Montreal, this event sheds light on the journey of a little-known photographer. It is an opportunity to become familiar with his full body of work, beyond his photographs of Montreal squares and parks. You will see Harry Sutcliffe's first award-winning works in England before he immigrated to Trois-Rivières in 1910, his Mauricie landscapes and his many postcards of Montreal. Harry Sutcliffe's archives - more than 2,000 photographs bequeathed to the McCord Museum by his descendants - illustrate a path taken by many British immigrants seeking a better life in Canada. What distinguished this adopted Montrealer was his fertile and unwavering passion for photography.

Tea and biscuits will be served.
Free admission (space is limited)
Are you a Museum Member? Reserve a seat by calling 514-398-7100, ext. 520
