Roles: 3D Imaging

Canadian Dress: The Confederation Era looks at how various nineteenth-century Canadians presented themselves through the clothes they wore. This module focuses on a formative period in Canada’s development as a nation, representing the generation that ushered in Confederation in 1867 and continued to build on that accomplishment. The Canada of this period was a very different place from the country we know today.
