At Mr. Howell's house, 218 Bleecker Street, Toronto. (About 1888).  The object shown on the table is a Wimshurst influence machine made by Mr. Moore.  With this machine and Leyden jars, they were able to get a spark about 13 inches long, which they photographed.

Left to right: Mr. Barters (a friend who came occasionally but whose name does not appear on the list of members), A. Elvins, A.F. Miller, G.G. Pursey, W.J. Moore (who for many years was a workman with the instrument maker James Foster).

This was published in JRASC 25, Plate XV, as part of D.J. Howell's article Recollections of the Early Days of the Astronomical Society.
