Scope and content
Photo album including photographs of RCAF Station Carberry, Service Flying Training School No. 33.
The album leaves devoted to the camp are preceded by about 26 photos illustrating the trajectory to the camp and succeeded by approximately 114 photos of Vancouver. The locations depicted in the photos include: New York City; Moncton, New Brunswick; Carberry, Manitoba; Brandon, Manitoba; various locations within Winnipeg; the Rockies (Jasper, Banff, AB); Regina, Saskatchewan; Vancouver, BC; Calgary, AB; Drumheller, AB; Montreal, Quebec. Photographs of the camp include aerial views of the camp, the Carberry coat of arms, images of activities on base, images of cafeterias and technical stores in the camp, personnel photographs, harvest in Carberry, and images of the town.
The photo album is in fair condition as far as the wooden cover is concerned, although the leaves have become fragile and have ripped slightly along the edges. The photographs appear in fair condition but show signs of wear and tear, particularly as they are not covered by a protective sheet.
