From the Nova Scotia archives comes this shot of 4 people in a car, taken way back in 1906. There is no other description, but the photographer herself is the big story here.
Clara Dennis was the first native woman in Nova Scotia to become a travel writer. Dennis, who lived from 1881-1958, was also an accomplished photographer with a passion for cars. Owning her own car, Dennis was an early ‘motoring tourist’, using her machine to explore the province, taking photos as she traveled.
You can be sure that we will include more of Clara Dennis’ car photos in the Cars in Canada series in the weeks to follow.
