Small Egypt Exhibit at McGill Library in Montreal
- Listers who happen to be in Montreal in February or March might wish to swing by the lobby of McLennan Library at McGill University. There is a modest but interesting exhibit entitled "Nile Letters: From Montrealers and Others" which features photographs, books, letters, several David Roberts lithographs and other items relating to travel in Egypt and Nubia in the latter half of the 19th century. It also reminds one of the heyday of the British Empire, for good and/or for bad. The primary source of the items displayed is Peter Redpath, a Canadian sugar magnate.
Entry is free, and the library is located downtown. There is a brief web description (scroll down a bit) at:
