Tobogganing in Ottawa

It's cold and snowy enough for this seasonal image —wood engraving by Sydney Prior Hall and Horace Harral.

Caption references John Campbell, Marquis of Lorne, married Princess Louise, the sixth child of Queen Victoria, in 1871. He was governor-general of Canada from 1878 to 1883. He succeeded his father as Duke of Argyll in 1900. Princess Louise was injured in a sleigh accident in Canada in February 1880
