Sorry but no. I found the picture on a Canadian website some years ago when searching for something entirely different. Even the web site has since disappeared. It just had the year and the title. The uniforms look right and the year being 45 years after the start of the war I suspect that it was some form of anniversary ceremony.
About the same time in the USA someone photographed the last few survivors of the AWI. These were reproduced in an American magazine some 30 years ago as I remember seeing this when I was working near Boston.

Hiram Cronk appears to have been the last US survivor of the war of 1812 -he died aged 105 obviously well pickled
