Thomas Mower Martin was a mostly self-taught painter born in England, who came to Canada in 1962. He settled in Toronto in 1880 and was selected as a member of the “Railway Painters”, a group of painters employed by the Canadian Pacific Railway to document the construction of the railroad through the Canadian Rockies. Laggan was the original name settlers gave to the village of what is now Lake Louise.
