Name of creator
Joseph Paynter (-[after 1919]) photographed events, sites, and people in the Carb, Manitoba area between approximately 1897 and 1919. He was born at Owen Sound, [Ontario] and died in an unknown place. He moved to Manitoba with a party of family and friends in 1879 when he applied for a homestead on NW1/4 31-14-26 (patented 1884). He later opened a photography studio in Carberry, and his nephew Will took over the farm. The studio was sold in circa 1918. A niece, Mary Gertrude Paynter, spent a year circa 1900 in his photography business. Further biographical information is unknown.

The 1988.218 accession was donated by Sylois J. McKay of an unknown place. 1988.253 was presented by Mrs. and Mr. Bob Revire of an unknown place.
