    General note

    As was standard practice at the City of Edmonton Archives, photographs were separated from their textual records and processed and described in isolation. In 2017 the photos in EA-89 were intellectually repatriated as best as possible with the textual records and described in the arrangement which was imposed in 2014.

    General note

    SubSeries 1.4 includes photos EA-89-1 through EA-89-15 and EA-89-84 through EA-89-90. The photos depict Fire Department buildings, equipment, and staff.
