Exploring photos: William Kirby’s House

This painting, done at the corner of Victoria and Front streets, shows the home of historian William Kirby, which was built in 1818. Kirby was a novelist, poet, customs officer and editor of the Niagara Mail. His office was in the building known as the Customs House on Queen Street, next to where Valu-Mart is today. Of the many books Kirby wrote one of particular interest is titled “Annals of Niagara.”
