Percy Byron arrived in Edmonton from New York in April 1906 with the intention of ranching or farming. However he quickly realized there were no ‘photographic engraving’ businesses in the area at the time and he saw an opportunity. Within twenty-four hours of arriving in Edmonton, he arranged to have a ‘complete photographic engraving plant’ sent to Edmonton, and by August he was producing photographic images.

The following year, Percy’s brother-in-law, Gustave May, joined him in Edmonton and the Byron-May Company was formed. The photography and photographic engraving business was quite successful for the next decade, enjoying many commissions and professional accolades (see Edmonton Bulletin 1911 Anniversary Edition, p. 75).

Florence Byron, Percy’s sister who had married Gustave May in 1905, joined him in Edmonton with their infant son, Joseph. Percy Byron married Louise Marrin in 1908 while on a visit to New York and his wife also came to Edmonton. Both families enjoyed prosperity and success in Edmonton. Florence and Gustave May had three more children. Percy and Louise Byron had four children in Edmonton.

However, the Byron-May Company fell on hard times with the coming of World War I and the business was sold to McDermid Engraving in 1917. Both the Byron and May families returned to New York the following year.

Historial de custodia

Joseph May is the son of Gustave May. Mrs. J. Casey is Dolores May Casey, the daughter of Joseph May and granddaughter of Gustave May.

Though the creator of the album is not certain, given the closeness of the two families, the album being a combination of business and family photos, and the donor being a descendant of the May family, it is quite possible, even likely, that the creator of the album was Florence Byron May.

Alcance y contenido

The fonds consists of an album of Byron-May photographs. Many of the photographs were part of their business, including commissioned images.
The album also includes photographs of the Percy Byron and Gustave May families.
