View on CPR Winnipeg to Vancouver 1887

An album of photographs by WM. Notman and Son, documenting travel between Winnipeg and Vancouver along the Canadian Pacific Railway. Mostly landscape photographs in the mountains, but also some cityscapes and buildings in Winnipeg. Also included is an original photograph order sheet from WM. Notman & Son from "3rd Series Manitoba & the North West" with pricing and titles. The album and photographs are in good shape, though some of the pages have separated from the binding.

[Jock Taylor's Travels]

An album of photographs, possibly assembled by Jock Taylor. At least some of the photos were taken by ‘Bodurtha’. Others were taken by Frederick Dally (many available through Library and Archives Canada). The images are believed to depict travels as part of the British Navy mainly aboard the HMS Zealous. Predominantly taken in 1870 and 1871 in South America, the United States, and British Columbia, it also includes images from Egypt in 1885. The photos are housed in a tattered blue album with the images glued onto the pages. Many photos include captions, though the writing is fading, and sometimes is recopied more legibly.

[Family Album of BC and Europe]

An album from an unknown family living in British Columbia, consisting mainly of family photos throughout BC, as well as a few purchased souvenir photographs from Europe. Many of the photos are captioned and/or dated, and they are not in specific chronological order. The photos are glued into the album, and many are fading badly. The orientation of the album switches after the first few pages, and the rest of the images are upside down.

[Laura Glenn]

Laura Glenn was a chairman of the Canadian Red Cross Corps in Windsor, Ontario, and also a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II. This album covers much of her life, though predominantly between 1940 and 1950 during her time throughout Europe. There are also a number of family photographs from later years. The album has photos glued in and they are almost all captioned and dated, with many personal names and even some addresses of the individuals pictured or where they were taken. There is also an envelope of additional photos and ephemera, these ones focusing more on her personal life and family. It includes birth announcements, Christmas cards, etc. The album and photos are in quite good shape, though the pages are brittle paper and many have been torn.
