One hundred and fifty years ago today, the Legislature of the Province of Canada first met in the original Parliament Building—the final session of the Province of Canada’s legislature before Confederation.
To celebrate this moment, former Maclean’s photographer Peter Bregg took an extremely high-resolution photo of MPs, senators, security guards and staff on Parliament Hill. The photo was taken with a high-resolution Nikon and 300mm lens, seated in a Gigapan device to capture multiple images and create a high megapixel-rate photo.
