Materiële staat

Directe bron van verwerving

This material is believed to have been transferred to the City of Edmonton Archives by City administration in the 1970s, and the Mayor's Office in the 1980s and 2002. The blank letterhead was found in the Cec Purves clippings file and moved to RG-6 in 2016.


The photographs were assigned item numbers with the prefix EA-353.
