Red Cap Snowshoe Club, Halifax, ca. 1890


The Red Cap Snowshoe Club was established in 1874 to encourage a taste for the winter exercise sport of snowshoeing and snowshoe racing. The society would later amend its bylaws to include all winter sports activities. For this early group photo, the Notman Studio photographed each member individually and then constructed a large composite photograph of the entire club.
