Name of creator
Biographical information concerning the donor or original owners of this collection is not available. Although several of the subjects are identified in captions on the back of the photographs, it was not noted if the subjects were known to the donor or if these photographs were part of a collection made by the donor for her own interest.
These photographs were donated to the Dugald Costume Museum by Mrs. Pat Wheeler of Winnipeg in 1984.
Scope and content
This collection contains 12 snapshots (one of which has been enlarged and mounted on a dark card), 3 postcard prints and 3 studio portraits. The subjects of these photographs are all individuals or groups of mostly young women but children and men also appear in several of the photographs. Of the identified subjects, only the name Gwen (or Gwendoline) is repeated twice. Included in this collection are two unusual postcards, ca.1912. The cards feature two prints in oval 'frames' on the face and messages in French on the reverse. Both are addressed to different addresses in Belgium, however, neither has stamps or displays any indication that they have been mailed.
Immediate source of acquisition
Original order has been lost and there is no reason to believe that the order in which the photographs have been accessioned has any significance.
