Caption: Cadet Corps, Quebec City High School, 11 June 1890

Many cadet corps were established in schools during the latter years of the 19th century. This 11 June 1890 photograph is of the corps from Quebec High School, an English-language secondary school founded in Quebec City before Confederation. Note the corporal (probably from the Quebec City garrison unit, B Battery, Regiment of Canadian Artillery) who acted as drill instructor in the centre. (Library and Archives Canada, PA-99974)
