Exhibit on Inventions at the Time of Confederation

‘An exhibit highlighting new and emerging Canadian inventions circa 1867. Through the lens of Canadian patent grants, the exhibit explores the mindset of the Confederation generation. Discover Canadian inventors’ designs for new technologies or how original concepts improved upon earlier patents – improving function, productivity and quality of life. The exhibit also brings home a plethora of Architect and City Engineer John G. Howard’s designs, papers, books and tools – so his home now reflects the active mind of one of Toronto’s most important early city builders.’
