Allan Albums Collection

  • CMC PHO A-21, PHO A-22
  • Fonds
  • [ca.1905]-1940

The oldest album contains 67 black and white snapshot photographs dating from ca.1905 - 1915. Most of the photographs are exterior shots that appear to have been taken in the St. Boniface area and many feature groups of young women (who are possibly a group of school friends) and what appears to be family groups. The young woman who appears as a subject most often is possibly the album's original owner. The newer album contains 269 snapshot photographs dating from ca.1934 - 1940. Many of the photographs feature as the main subject a young woman who is possibly the creator of the album. The photographs show the creator and her family on vacation in locations as diverse as Vancouver, Banff, Kenora, Winnipeg Beach, Whytewold and Clear Lake as well as many scenic shots of those areas. The creator is also shown on several occasions at the Winnipeg Canoe Club. The album also features several high quality photographs of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth during their visit to Manitoba in 1939. There is a physical resemblance between the main subject of the older album and the 'mother' in the newer album and it is possible that they are the same person.

  • Fonds
  • [ca.1895]-1915

With one exception the subjects of these photographs, all dating from around the turn of the century, are not identified. It is not known if the unidentified subjects have any connection with the donor and the photographs were possibly collected as part of the donor's interest in costume. The photographs are all individual studio portraits. Four are portrait busts of women. One is a full length portrait of a woman identified as Katherine Tupper, the granddaughter of Sir Charles Tupper, wearing her 'coming out' dress, ca.1905 - 1910.
