Albums contain several portraits of the photographer, Ben (last name not mentioned), member of No. 39 Service Training Flying School (Swift Current, Sask. British Commonwealth Air Training Plan).
Photographs capture daily activities, events, and context related to Swift Current, Saskatchewan, such as the city, images of the prairie, classrooms, sleeping accommodations, leisure activities (e.g. skating), colleagues’ study areas, farm items and animals, transit stations, and Wings parades.
A prominent image is that of the cast of the 3rd Current Review (Sept. 1942), which depicts a line of beauty queens named after war-planes (Miss Hurricane, Miss Spitfire, Miss Mosquito, etc.), and a drag queen at the centre named Missed It.
The photo albums also document the photographer Ben’s travels during his leave. As a result, the albums include many images of Swift Current, Winnipeg, the Rockies, various locations in BC, and California.
