The Prince of Wales' tour moves on to Toronto, capital of Upper Canada

Prince of Wales, 1859, detail
09/07/1860 to 09/12/1860
Prince Albert's Canadian tour went on from Ottawa to Toronto, the capital of Upper Canada.  After a massive welcome, which included 5000 schoolchildren singing the national anthem, he attended several large balls, worshiped at St. James' Cathedral, took an excursion to nearby Collingwood, and visited Toronto University.  The remarkably bad weather that had dogged the party for all of its stay continued.  The party's next stop was London, in Canada West.  (By John Osborne)
