[Ten Annual Cycling Trips, 1938-1947]

Photo album documenting sisters Clara and Kitty Wilson’s ten annual cycling trips taken throughout British Columbia in July and/or August of 1938 through 1947. The first seven trips were on Vancouver Island, the eighth in the Okanagan, and the ninth and tenth in the Cariboo region. The photos are thoroughly captioned and still in good shape. Also included are the letters and postcards they sent home during the trips (half of each card written by each sister), as well as newspaper clippings, business cards, a menu from BC Coast Steamships, a telegram, and a negative. There are also 25 hand-drawn cartoons highlighting some of their adventures. They nicknamed their bikes Rastus and Ginger, and also use a variety of pet names when signing their letters and referring to family members. The album is in decent shape though the pages are flaking at the edges. See also UL_1596 for a family photo album kept by the sisters.

Wilson, Clara

There are images from the around the city, from the interior of what is believed to be the Istanbul Archaeology Museum, and one, incongruously, of the Great Wall of China.

An album of photographs and postcards of Istanbul (referred to as Stamboul or Constantinople throughout). Most of the images include type-written captions.

An album of portraits taken at various studios throughout the United States, predominantly in Iowa. This album is from the estate of one Mr. Abramson, a former Consul General of the United States to Canada. The name Emma L.

Also included are an invitation to the wedding of Hattie Johnston to Joe Petty in August of 1883, and a card reading "Compliments of Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Ammonds, At Home, Wednesday Eve., Sept. 5th".
