A Mobile and Visible Carriage on display at Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood, Art Gallery of Ontario, 2017.
In 1837 Thornton and Lucy Blackburn’s taxicab was the first and only cab in Upper Canada (present day Southern Ontario). It made visible the Blackburn's lived experience in Toronto and stands as evidence of a people who were at the vanguard of society.
