PE001559 - Photographs: [Alberta scenes]

The creator of the album is not explicitly identified, but visual evidence suggests he may have been Lorne Muir. Two images identified as "Lorne Muir" or "L. Muir" appear to match photographs containing the captions "self" or "myself." From 1911 into the 1950s, Edmonton Henderson's directories contain entries for a Lorne Muir, first as a resident of the Mortlake Block and subsequently of other local addresses. He began work as a clerk at Revillon Bros., eventually becoming manager of its hardware department. He later worked at Ashdown's Hardware. The album contains photographs of Revillon buildings as well as the interior of an apartment accompanied by the caption "Rooms, Mortlake Block."

The album consists largely of photographs of individuals - presumably friends, family, and colleagues - in a variety of settings ranging from mountain and ranch scenes to residential and commercial venues. The subjects are often identified by first name and, in many cases, more fully. Although there are a number of British Columbia locales represented, the bulk of the images appear to have been taken in Alberta. There are several photographs and postcards of the Edmonton flood of 1915. The postcards include images of the 1899 flood and prospective miners heading north to the Klondike gold rush.

PE001566 - [Photographs and printed ephemera documenting an Alberta soldier's service in World War I]

Although several captions list the individual pictured as "self" or "myself," the creator of the album does not appear to be explicitly identified. Nonetheless, several pieces of ephemera in the album - including passes and a voucher for a railway ticket - refer to a S.W. Kerley. One item carrying Mr. Kerley's name is accompanied by the caption "My last ration book in Blighty." Internal references suggest that the soldier served with the 31st Battalion, Alberta Regiment, and a S.W. Kerley is included in the nominal roll. For more information on the Regiment, please see its entry in the Canadian Great War Project Web site (available online at http://www.canadiangreatwarproject.com/Regimental/31stBattalion.asp [accessed on 10 December 2018]).

The album documents the experiences of an Alberta soldier during World War I from recruitment to his return from Europe. The majority of photographs capture Mr. Kerley and his fellow soldiers in a variety of settings from training in Alberta to the battlefields of Europe. The album contains portraits of soldiers taken in Calgary, Medicine Hat, Edmonton, Bramshott, England, as well as in Germany and Belgium. Many of the soldiers are identified at least by surname and, in some cases, more fully. There are also images of major Canadian battlefields such as Arras-Cambrai Road, Ypres, Passchendaele, and Vimy Ridge.

The 31st Battalion did not return to Canada until May of 1919, remaining in Germany to serve as part of the occupying forces. The album also documents this phase of the war, containing four photographs dated January 1919 with the accompanying captions "Outpost duty in Germany." Several pieces of ephemera also appear to be from Mr. Kerley's service during the occupation. These include the address of a German family, laundry lists, and a theatre programme from Namur, Belgium, dated 4 March 1919.

As with the photographs and postcards, the printed ephemera document many aspects of Mr. Kerley's military service. The album contains materials from the ship voyages to and from Europe, including menus, a concert programme, and a card listing berth and mess information. There is also a card from the Canadian Pacific Railway for soldiers travelling in Canada following repatriation.

Mr. Kerley also collected a number of miscellaneous souvenirs from his time in Europe, including currency and an identity card used by French and Belgian workers during the German occupation. Documents specifically related to his military service - such as a menu from a 1917 Christmas dinner, a programme from the Canadian Corps Championship (a multi-sport athletic competition held on 1 July 1918), and German and Canadian field-letter cards - are also present.

In a few cases, captions indicate the provenance of individual items, some of which appear to have been taken as souvenirs of combat. Several photographs are listed as having been found on battlefields. For example, three photographs are accompanied by these captions:
• “German N.C.O.’s found on an N.C.O. during the Amiens Drive, Aug.-1918”
• “’A German Fraulein’ found on a Hun soldier found at Neuville Vitasse”
• “Found this photo laying beside this soldier’s body after our capture of Rosiers on the Somme – 1918 Aug.”

PE001678 - Letter describing a North West Police mutiny

Letter from Rev. Andrew Baird in Edmonton addressed to a Miss P.L. Cook of Toronto. Describes a mutiny that took place among the North West Police over promotions. Thanks her affectionately for a photograph she sent. Autograph letter signed.

Transcription:
My Dear Miss Cook,

I began a note acknowledging yours of last week before the last mail left but I did not get time to finish it before the mail closed and know although I have left it off till the last day before the mail goes out again, I cannot deny myself Mrs. Johanson [?] of writing a few words before your next letter comes.

I do not know why you think your photograph had a depressing effect on me. Was it because I spoke of home sickness in the last letter? Now I must tell you that home sickness, in this mild form in when it attacks me is not this morbid and dispiriting thing you suspect, but a tender and refining influence which I welcome rather than otherwise, because it shows me that the wild west with its cowboys and its broncos and and its gaudy spectators has not hardened me beyond this humanizing grown of our affection that I sometimes find myself looking upon as old fashioned. Your inscriptions banish it -- from a wrong diagnosis of the case. On the mantelpiece it is --. It is to be my inspiration.

Edmonton is all excitement over a mutiny in the Mounted Police force which has been going on for the last four or five days. Six new men were promoted to corporals over the heads of men of longer experience and the men rebelled. The commanding officer Major Griesbach is a man of small caliber and form in at first and then the men made other demands. Matters went on from bad to worse till today when by a man, the malcontents were divided and and 18 arrests were made. The town had to be ransacked for chains to make the shackles for them. 12 men were interviewed, the Major confessed that they were equally with those arrested and asked to be imprisoned too!!

The weather is beautiful. Every day for the past week has been warm and sunshiny a decided change from January.

Yours willfully,
Andrew Baird

PE000373 - Cityscape Photograph - Edmonton Civic Centre Development Project

B&W print, wide-angle photograph of cityscape.

Part of a collection of materials related to the planned Edmonton Civic Centre in the 1960s. In the early 1960s, Webb & Knapp, a large land development company, entered into an agreement with the City of Edmonton to develop a proposal for a new downtown civic centre. The agreement contained provisions such that Webb & Knapp would fund the cost of the proposal, and if the proposal were to be approved, Webb & Knapp would receive considerable land rights in the development area as compensation. However, were the proposal to be rejected, the proposal itself was to become property of the City of Edmonton. The proposal by Webb & Knapp was ultimately rejected, but not until after the City of Edmonton Planning Commission developed its own proposal that, Webb & Knapp argued, made significant use of the original proposal. Webb & Knapp sued the City of Edmonton, ultimately winning a decision on breach of copyright in 1970.

PE001557 - Photographs: [Images of Edmonton and surrounding area]

The origins of the album are unclear, but it could be the record of British immigrants to northern Alberta. The verso of the loose portrait contains a photographer's stamp that includes a Westbourne Grove address, a retail area of west London. Several of the earliest photographs appear to be taken from a ship in the Gulf of St. Lawrence (including a picture of an iceberg), which could indicate a trans-Atlantic trip.

The majority of photographs, however, are from Alberta locales: Fallis, Rexboro, Lake Wabumun, and, most commonly, Edmonton. The album contains several photographs of the Hudson's Bay Company's 250th anniversary pageant held in Edmonton on 8 May 1920. There are also Edmonton images of the University of Alberta, cutting ice from the river, and Cree and Blackfoot participants in an unnamed 1922 event.

Many of the images are of individuals - presumably family members and friends - in agricultural and other settings. The captions do not always fully identify the subjects, but several surnames are mentioned: Bennett, Cannell, Margerison, Warning, Mullett, Merryweather, and Mills.

Vol. 49, No. 13,514 (June 17, 1893) of the Saturday Globe. The feature article “Edmonton and the Saskatchewan Valley” provides a description of Edmonton and the surrounding environs.

Accompanying photographs depict both landscapes and scenery outside Edmonton, as well as major buildings within the municipality.

The Globe newspaper, to which the Saturday Globe was a supplement, is bound to the back of the supplement. However, the parent newspaper does not appear to carry substantive content on the Prairie Provinces.
