Starting with two photographs of the Ontario Educational Exhibit of 1876, this article explores the visual culture of colonial Upper Canada's educational environment and landscape as envisioned in photographs, exhibitions and buildings. Their complicity and visceral affect can be interpreted by the experience of movement in space. The significance of combining sight and movement in the historical experience of creating the classified landscapes of education facilitated industrial modernity's production of difference in space, identities, gender and labour, while promoting educational progress of the British Empire in the Atlantic world.
