The boxcar trips

Arranged by Lawren Harris, in which he and his painting friends traveled north to Algoma, the ‘boxcar trips’ are well-documented.

We know that in 1919 (the second trip) the party stopped at Batchawana, the last point on the trip, where they remained for about a week. By mid-October they were back in Toronto.
