By 1860, Canada was on the verge of Confederation and a new independence. Canadians were in the depth of sorting out their relationship with Britain, their Monarch and one another. Just two decades earlier, Upper and Lower Canada had been gripped by rebellion and violent conflict, motivated in part by frustration with the powerful families and unelected political appointees who held power and influence, by tensions between... Meanwhile, the notions of individual liberty, self-governance and independence were increasingly taking root here, despite deep attachments with the British Crown, as they were around the globe. Into this seething political cauldron came eighteen-year-old Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (later Edward VII, King of the United Kingdom, the British Dominions and Emperor of India). Prince Albert at the time was one of the world’s wealthiest men, with a playboy reputation and zeal for dancing. Following a request from the legislative assemblies of both Upper and Lower Canada, his mother, Queen Victoria, sent her eldest son “Bertie” on a goodwill tour of Canada and the United States — the first official Royal Tour of Canada. Young Prince Albert was mobbed wherever he went. Massive crowds turned out and lined the streets to see him arrive. “No pen could adequately describe the unbounded enthusiasm of the joyous multitudes assembled to greet their future Sovereign on the banks of Lake Ontario,” Robert Cellem, who served as an aide to the Prince, wrote in his “faithful record” of a... During his Royal Tour in Toronto, the Prince attended a reception at Osgoode Hall and afterwards made his way to the “the old Racquet Court in the rear of Lamb’s Hotel” for a game of “rackets. Then, as now, there was intense fascination with the Royals. “A few heard of it and went to the place — a number of young gentleman procured ladders and mounted to the roof, and looking through the glass informed those on the ground that certainly the Heir Apparent to the British throne was earnestly... More ladders were obtained but “In their anxiety to see the prince several of the small squares of glass were broken and the debris falling on the floor of the court made it dangerous to continue the game,” Cellem observed. Later that evening, at a reception at Osgoode Hall, the Prince, as he had elsewhere on his Canadian tour, indulged his fondness for dancing which he did until close to midnight. At a subsequent ball, he danced until 4 a. m. In Niagara Falls before huge crowds he watched daredevil Charles Blondin cross Niagara Falls on a high wire, pushing a man in front of him on a wheel barrel. When Blondin offered to take the Prince back over the falls in the same wheel barrel to the American side, Albert gamely agreed, but was prevented by his entourage. Although the purpose of his trip was goodwill, to foster relations between Britain and Canada, it was also political. It demonstrated the Crown’s “deep and lasting attachment” to its subjects here, and on the part of Canadians, their attachment to the Queen and mother country. The British colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were growing, and quickly. Railway construction increasingly connected urban centres, which along with the growing use of steam power, fueled the notion of a transcontinental state (though the building of Canada’s transcontinental railway was two decades away. It was the era of mass construction of public buildings and infrastructure.
