In 1906 and 1910, George Eastman vacationed in what is now the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. During her MA studies in the museum's PPCM program, Edith Cuerrier cataloged the two resulting photo albums and will now share the nearly three hundred images that Eastman and his travel companions took while on vacation. You will see Eastman as a fishing and camping enthusiast, amateur photographer, and generous travel companion.
