William Nathaniel Wesbroom had a dual career. The 1881 directory lists him as an engraver, but he was actually a skilled lithographer and artist. His best-known work is a birdseye view of Toronto.
But William gave up art for preaching, and moved to the USA in 1893 with his wife Elizabeth. In 1900 they were living in Nassau, New York state, and William's occupation was given as “Preacher Baptist”. By 1910 they had moved to Camden, New Jersey and William had become a Baptist Minister.
