Name of creator
Beatrice Ashton's grandparents, Hannah (Ward) Furness and Algernon Furness were married in England in 1880. After their marriage, they lived at Willow Cottage, St. James' Lane, Muswell Hill, London. Beatrice's father, Robert Ashton, attended St. John the Baptist School in Liverpool. He earned several medals for attendance and a scholarship to continue on from grammar school. He was unable to take up the offer, however, as he had to go to work at fourteen. Robert Ashton came to Canada around 1910. Beatrice was employed as a teacher in Winnipeg for many years.
These photographs were donated to the Dugald Costume Museum by Beatrice Rose Ashton in 1984.
Scope and content
The collection includes two postcard prints, ca. 1900 - 1910, of groups of school children. One group consists of 26 boys and two men. One of the boys holds a sign which reads 'St. John Baptist School [Standard?]'. The other consists of a large group of primary students seated at desks and two teachers. The collection also includes three snapshots of groups of men and women at a picnic somewhere in Winnipeg, ca.1908.
Immediate source of acquisition
The photographs appear to have been arranged as to subject by the accessioning archivist.
