Initially, these works were loaned to Library and Archives Canada for copying purposes (accession 1976-238), however the original images were acquired through the Sotheby's (London) May 7, 1998 Photographs Sale.

The 12 b&w photographs were loaned to the National Archives of Canada and copied in 1976. The originals were returned to the lender.

Historique de la conservation
These works were made in Canada for Lord Elgin, and brought back to Great Britain by him. The two daguerrotypes remained in family hands, in unbroken descent, until their sale at auction on May 7, 1998 to the National Archives of Canada. The 12 photographs also followed this custodial history and were loaned and copied in 1976.
