  • CMC A-32; C-130 (PHO Box #2).
  • Fonds
  • [between 1960-1984] - [ca.1915], copied 1993.

Items described here consist of an album containing 103 colour images. The album was compiled to serve as a record of Ofelia's wardrobe prior to its sale following her death and was likely created between 1960 and 1984. According to notes made by Museum curator Dr. Jane Fuller at the time of the donation the model, Mrs. Shirley Paine, was chosen for her resemblance to Ofelia. Also described here are 2 original black and white prints as well as 13 copies featuring Leone and Ofelia Caetani and their daughter Sveva. The originals of these copies have been accessioned by the Vernon Museum. In addition there are 4 colour photographs and 1 colour Polaroid of Ofelia's Louis Vuitton luggage, which has also been donated to the Museum.

McFarland Family fonds.

  • CMC C-120 (PHO Box #2); Box 600-1.
  • Fonds
  • [ca.1865] - [before 1960].

Items that comprise this fonds primarily consist of photographs that feature members of the McFarland family and Howden families. Many of the photographs have notes written on the reverse identifying the subjects but it is not known who wrote the notes. The work of a variety of Manitoba photographers is represented, both from Winnipeg and from rural areas. A number of Ontario photographers are also represented and based on their stamps, it can be seen that a significant number of photographs originated in the Mt. Forest and Durham areas of Ontario. In addition to a significant number of 19th century photographs, the fonds also includes a large number of small format, black and white snapshots dating from ca.1915 to 1950. The subjects of these photographs include men, women, and children, largely unidentified.

Items also include a set of Stereo Cards dating from ca.1910 and depicting the Winnipeg operations of the T. Eaton Co. These cards have detailed captions on the reverse. The set would have included 50 cards and 3 cards are missing form the set.

Items found among this fonds also include miscellaneous family papers (a list may be found in the first folder) including a number of items which had belonged to Mary Janet (Saunders) Burnett. Her relationship, if any, to Lena and Sandford McFarland is not known and it is possible that these items were mixed in with the McFarland materials at the time of accession. These items include a certificate documenting the marriage of James D. Stewart and Jennie M. Saunders in Normanby, County Grey, in 1895. James and Jennie were the parents of Mary Janet (Saunders) Burnett's first husband, James Stewart. The subjects of a number of photographs are identified as members of the Saunders family who were relatives of Mary Janet (Saunders) Burnett.
