Scope and content

This series of historical photographs focuses on the structures and places of British Columbia, notably building exteriors and interiors, and street views. Locations include Victoria, Vancouver and the Lower Mainland area, Sunshine Coast, Nanaimo, Chilliwack, Sicamous, Vernon and Prince George. Images feature exteriors of business buildings and structures (such as sawmills) in the 1920s, interiors of retail shops and work spaces circa 1910 to 1940, interiors of domestic settings, and many maritime scenes. Highlights identified by the collector include the crowds listening to the Duke of Connaught at the Vancouver Court House in 1912, aerial views of Vancouver from the 1930s to 1950s, and "lost buildings".
