Glass Slide Photographs

This series consists of photographs originally created by others or from books, which Hubert Hollingworth re-photographed onto glass slide negatives. These were possibly used by Hollingworth for presentations on glass slides. The images cover a variety of subjects including religion and missionary work, farm animals, medical education, images of the reconstruction of England after WWII, Indigenous people, the Canadian West including Saskatchewan, Vancouver and the Rocky Mountains, and Quebec.

The majority of the religious images belonged to missionary Charles O. Bowen, a Welsh immigrant. The images consist of nature photographs, often mountain scenes with a biblical scripture or hymn transposed on them.
Another contributor of the religious images was Miss Cork, a missionary who worked in Africa.

Some of the medical education images can be attributed to professors from the University of Alberta including Dr. Evan Greene, Dr. Ralph Faust Shaner and Dr. Maxwell Mordecai Cantor.
Dr. Evan Greene (1873-1966), a surgeon and anatomist, was one of Alberta’s earliest doctors. The subject of his slides is anatomy.
Dr. Ralph Faust Shaner (1893-1976) was an anatomist, professor and head of the University of Alberta’s Department of Anatomy. His images represent many of the course that he taught such as histology, embryology and neuroanatomy.
Dr. Maxwell Mordecai Cantor (1903-1981) was the provincial coroner and a biochemist at the University of Alberta. Dr. Cantor’s images are of the pathology of disease.

Heritage Planning

These records were created by the Heritage Planning Unit through their function of identifying and preserving historical buildings in Edmonton. The records include reports, publications, walking tours, correspondence, and operational files relating to the preservation of historical properties, including projects such as heritage surveys and inventories.

The series includes a full run of neighbourhood fact sheets documenting communities in Edmonton in the late 1980s and early 1990s (files 55-245). Also included are files containing information and correspondence around buildings of interest (files 296-1438), and buildings which have been demolished or moved from their original location (files 1590-1684).

Files 1685-1975 are designation files, and include information and correspondence related primarily to the conservation of properties which have been formally designated as Municipal Historical Resources.

Many files listed in the file list contain photographs documenting buildings.
