Scope and Content

Fonds consists of a bound volume belonging to Thomas Glegg which he called a "Sketchbook , Notebook, and Commonplace book" . The first fifteen pages of the volume contains drawings in pen and ink and watercolours, with notes about the content of the drawings. Illustrations include the Brock Monument on Queenston Heights; one of 3 blockhouses erected during the rebellion of 1837 in Toronto; a sketch of the English Church at Hamilton, Ontario, a plan of the city of Toronto and Toronto Island; a drawing of Fort York at Toronto; the English Church at Dundas, Ontario; and the residence of John Powell on Spadina Avenue in Toronto; and a view of King Street in Toronto.

In addition to comments on the sketches, the volume also contains a detailed description of Hamilton, Ontario.

The remainder of the volume contains two additional sketches and many clippings and notes, but of sites and topics related to England rather than to Canada West. They include extracts from published literature, notes on architecture, and some genealogical information.
