Byron-May Company

The series consists of Byron-May Company photographs from the Byron-May album. Many were part of their business, including images commissioned by the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce. The photographs include buildings, sports events, agriculture, exhibitions, street and river valley scenes, and military personnel. At the time, these photographs were used to promote Edmonton as an up-and-coming city.

Other commissioned photographs, such as family or home portraits, show not only the growth of the Byron-May Co. and the booming prosperity of Edmontonians at the time, but also reflect the increasing popularity of photography in the early twentieth century.
