This image from the A.A.Chesterfield collection likely dates from the 1910’s and is said to be of “an international contestant mid-air at the Montreal Ski Club jump.” The album in which this photograph resides is titled “Notables” and was compiled as a depiction of Canadian life, and includes images of other quintessential Canadian activities and events such as maple syrup making, bronco-riding, sledding, hunting, canoeing and fishing.
