Canadian Illustrated News digitized

From the first issue, on October 30 1869 to the final one on December 29, 1883 the weekly Canadian Illustrated News is well known for the window it gives on the times in word and image.

An essential resource, the illustrations only have been available online through Library and Archives Canada for some while, here. Quite a few libraries have original bound volumes, including the Ottawa Public Library.

You can now review a selection of issues through Google's news archive. There is good coverage for the early years, from 1869 to 1872, and scatterred issues thereafter. Browse from here.

You would be better off going to the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec where they have ALL of the issues. ECO Online also now has put them up on the website as well.
