    Canada: Arrival of Canadian Militia Forces to Port Dalhousie, Ontario to Meet the Fenian Invasion of Canada, Original Watercolor Painting, c. 1870. This fine painting shows a ferry delivering a large contingent of the Canadian Militia to the quay at Port Dalhousie, Ontario where a large number of militiamen await their fellow soldiers. The painting also shows in detail the buildings and ships along the dockside. There are several ships moored to the right of the painting. The painting is one of a series of unsigned works dealing with the Fenian invasion; the others are in the Fort Erie Museum collection. The painting measures 15" x 12.25" (sight sized, not examined out of the frame). It is matted and framed to an overall size of 22.5" x 19.5". The painting has "Port Dalhousie" in the lower left corner. The two lower corners have been cut out and reattached.
