PE001562 - [Photo album containing predominantly Edmonton and Alberta images]

Some of the images are identified as from Edmonton's Alfred Blyth Studios. Alfred Blyth (1901-1980) moved to Edmonton from Scotland around 1913 and began work as a darkroom technician in 1916. In 1928, he opened his own studio, which he operated until his retirement in 1970. For more information, please see the biographical entry in the Provincial Museum of Alberta's Alfred Blyth fonds (available online at https://hermis.alberta.ca/paa/Details.aspx?ObjectID=PR0607&dv=True&deptID=1 [accessed on 12 December 2018]).

Approximately half of the album's photographs document Edmonton and area landscapes, buildings, and events. These include images of the Legislature, the Public Library, local golf courses, the 1937 Coronation celebration, and the dedication of the Cenotaph. The remaining images capture scenes elsewhere in Alberta - for example, Banff, Jasper, and Cooking Lake - or outside the province. There are a number of photographs of Vancouver and the Pacific Coast of the United States. Northern scenes are particularly prominent, including images of Alaska and a page of photographs accompanied by the notation "Eskimo scenes."

PE000795 - Photographs of various spots within Jasper National Park

Compilation of B&W photographs of various spots within Jasper National Park. Photographed by F. H. Slark.

  • This is a long shot of Mount Edith Cavell taken from the unpaved road surrounded by trees showing the mountain in the distance. The back is stamped “Photograph; Canadian National Railway” and contains typewritten and handwritten captions. Photograph is clear but shows strong signs of wear, specifically diagonal folding marks on the right side and dirt stains along the corners.
  • View of Mt. Kerkeslin and Athabasca Falls. Photograph is in good condition but does exhibit signs of wear: there are dirt stains along the corners and the gloss shows heavy handling.
  • Long shot of cabins and trees by the riverside, with the mountains rising behind. Photo is in poor condition; signs of wear include a conspicuous sun mark that affects the exposure on the right side and likely resulted in a pink diagonal mark on the bottom right corner. Photograph shows signs of exposure shrinkage and a fair number of stains throughout, as well as several folding marks.
  • View of a collapsed powerline, with the mountains rising behind. Photograph shows signs of sun exposure and contains various stains and folding marks throughout.
  • View of fallen logs. Photograph shows signs of sun exposure and contains various stains and folding marks throughout.
