Notice biographique

Historique de la conservation

Portée et contenu

The album's photographs capture Rocky Mountain scenes. Some of these are generic landscapes, but most are associated with tourist camps operated by Fred Brewster (1884-1969). Brewster, born in Banff, was a central figure in the development of the tourism industry around Jasper, establishing a number of camps and tours in the region. For more information, please see the biographical entry in the Jasper Yellowhead Museum and Archives' Fred Brewster fonds (available online at https://albertaonrecord.ca/fred-brewster-fonds [accessed on 12 December 2018]).

The album contains photographs from Brewster's Tonquin Valley Chalet, Maligne Lake Chalet, Medicine Lake Chalet, and Black Cat Guest Ranch. The images capture camp buildings and equipment as well as staff and guests. Staff members are also shown in various activities related to the operation of the facilities and tours, such as opening and closing the camps for the season.

Some annotations list only the first names of the people shown, but in some instances - for example, Bud and Myra Patterson, manager and hostess of the Maligne Lake Chalet - the surname is also provided. One of the individuals identified, George Chopey, is also listed as having taken several of the photographs.
