Project Update

Just a small update on progress. Our group met with Campbell House on Tuesday and discussed what they would like on the site. As for the portion I am currently looking into, the past residents of Campbell House, we came to a conclusion that a timeline with links leading towards separate pages or perhaps popups […]

This week’s update

Our group did a lot of artifact sorting, identification, and photography this week. At this point, we’ve managed to photograph about 25-50% of what we’d like on the website. I’ve been sorting through the photos over the last few days so that I can make some minor cropping/exposure edits. Once this is done, with the […]

Campbell House Update #2

This past week our group has made quite a lot of progress. The biggest thing that we managed to accomplish is actually meeting with our partner. I believe that the meeting went quite well.

There are tonnes of historical maps online here, while the full collection of Goad’s Atlas of the City of Toronto maps can be found here. Both are great resources.

Weekly Project Post 1

Due to not having set out any actual dates yet to carry out our primary and secondary research and a busy schedule this week, my contribution to the project this week was mostly characterized by doing some basic secondary research.
