Humphrey Lloyd Hime

Humphrey Lloyd Hime (17 September 1833 – 31 October 1903) was an Irish-Canadian photographer, surveyor, businessman, and politician who accompanied Henry Youle Hind on his 1858 Assiniboine and Saskatchewan Exploring Expedition, meant to assess the viability of settling Western Canada. After the expedition, Hime returned to Toronto and continued to work at the firm Armstrong, Beere and Hime, Civil Engineers Draughtsmen, and Photographists, and eventually held several municipal offices. The firm had produced the Armstrong, Beere and Hime panorama in 1857, the earliest known photographs of Toronto.

In 1860, Hime established his own brokerage firm despite having no experience in stocks or brokerage, a trait shared with nearly half of Toronto's brokers at the time. Hime joined the Toronto Stock Exchange the following year, remaining a member until its collapse in 1869, and joined its replacement in 1871 and retained his membership until 1898. As a member of the TSE, he held various executive positions including Committee Member, Secretary, Treasurer, Vice President, and President.
