The collection consists of records donated by the Oblate Archives as the records better serve the mandate of the City of Edmonton Archives. It consists of photographs of early Edmonton, including Fort Edmonton, the North Saskatchewan River and John Walter’s Mill.
The fonds consists of photographs of Edmonton taken by Eric R. Crouch. They include skylines, buildings, bridges, the Legislative Grounds and various cityscapes taken from the roofs of downtown buildings.
The fonds consists predominantly of records from Kathleen Waddell’s time in the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service. They include one menu card for the Christmas Dinner 1943 of HMCS Stadacona and photographs of Kathleen as a Wren (EA-557-1 to EA-557-11). There are also photographs of the 1915 flood of the North Saskatchewan River taken by Kathleen’s father, Robert Waddell (EA-557-12 to EA-557-14).
The fonds consists of photographs of people, nature, weather, buildings, street scenes and events in Edmonton, as well as some self-portraits and still lifes. Of special interest are sequential photographs of storms and weather events, as well as building demolition and construction, notably the Molson’s Brewery building on 104 Avenue.
The fonds consists of photographs and photo postcards of the flood of the North Saskatchewan River on 29 Jun 1915. As Thomas Walker was a city official at the time of the flood, it potentially explains how the photographer gained such access to the bridge/flood site in order to take the photographs. It is possible the records were later used in a display on the flood.
This fonds consists of a history of the Alban, Treals, Cartmell and Fry families, transit maps, an Alberta Railway timetable, a price list for Hazletts' store, and materials on the Edmonton Bird Club. The photographs include Edmonton buildings, street scenes, events and people.
The fonds consists of pamphlets and textual material that John had collected on public art. The photographs cover places of worship, public art, bridges, public buildings, shopping centres, streetscapes and the demolition of several buildings in Edmonton and area.
