The Tremaine Arkley Croquet Collection contains over 2,400 paintings, illustrations, engravings, advertisements, photographs and other ephemera depicting the game of croquet throughout the years. The images range from fine art to cartoons and everything in between, and show the rise in the game’s popularity in England and America in the 19th and 20th centuries. Many items in the collection show gender roles, as croquet was one of the first games that men and women played together.
Much of the collection has been digitized and is available to view on UBC’s Digital Collections website at http://digitalcollections.library.ubc.ca/cdm/landingpage/collection/arkley.
