Gatineau, Ontario: World's first sunglasses. Referred to as snow goggles, they were made from bone, leather or wood, designed to protect the eyes from snowblindness caused by bright spring sunlight. The first goggles date back 2000 years to the Old Bering Sea culture, who were the ancestors of the modern Inuit. Snow goggles came to Canada with the Inuit about 800 years ago.
