Christopher Murray Small, known as Christie, was born 3 Sep 1864 to Margret Gourley and Matthew Small in Renfrew County, Ontario. Christie was originally a farmer and later became a lumber foreman in Pembroke, Ontario. He married Annie Ryan in 1892 in Pembroke, and they had six children - Effie, Mabel, Harry, Irene, Muriel and Alfred.

In 1912, he purchased land in Edmonton, in the area formerly known as Crescent Heights. As this time was one of Edmonton's building booms, and Christy did not move to Edmonton, presumably this purchase was for land speculation.

The records in this series relate to the functions of the Printing and Reproductions Branch.

This branch, under Director Vern Skogg, was responsible for defining the use of materials, quality and quantity required, selecting the proper process, and producing the print job. The function was divided into two elements: plan printing and printing. Plan Printing serviced the needs of all City departments for blue and black line prints, sepias and mylars. There were three categories of printing: the printing of small reports, agendas, bylaws, inter-departmental letters and all of the council material for their meetings; a second category included the printing of all types of forms, letterhead, cards, brochures, books and reports; the third category was the tendering of printing requests that the shop could not handle because of large volume, or economy.

This branch had a satellite print shop at the Police Station to facilitate the immediate turnover requirements of the Police.

During the late 1960s this program was expanded to combine both 16 mm and 35 mm microfilm systems which gave complete flexibility and had the added advantage of making use of equipment in the Computer Operations Centre.
