Name of creator
Marion Beattie (formerly Marion Thomsen) was married to life-long Oak Bank resident J. Gordon Beattie from 1964 until her death in 1984. Marion's involvement with the Dugald Costume Review and the Dugald Costume Museum spanned many years. She was responsible for bringing many artifacts from herself and other donors to the museum's collection including this small set of photographs.
Many of the subjects featured in these photographs are identified, however, their relationship to Marion Beattie or her husband, Gordon, is unclear. These photographs were donated to the Dugald Costume Museum by Marion Beattie in 1984.
Scope and content
Thirteen of the fourteen photographs in this collection date from ca.1915 - 1927 and all but three of these are studio produced portrait busts. Also included in this group are two views of farm machinery in the fields (one view of which is identified as McKerchar's, near Rosser) and a candid snapshot of a couple embracing. There is also a large format photograph of the Dugald Ladies Fashion Review pictured on a float for the Transcona 50th Anniversary Parade in 1961.
