47 albums (5235 photographs) b&w.

Scope and content

Photographic albums maintained in the Immigration Branch of the Department of Mines and Resources from 1936 to 1939, which had been compiled within the Department of the Interior in the period from 1892 to 1917. The albums contain photographs primarily taken by photographers John Woodruff and Horatio N. Topley, who were either employed by or on contract to the Department of the Interior, and who undertook a number of journeys in the period from 1903-1914 to complete the photographs in the albums. Included are views relating to agriculture, railroads, ports, cities, and immigration in virtually every province and territory in Canada (excluding Newfoundland). Also included are views of events such as the Quebec Tercentenary Celebrations, and the visit of Arthur Conan Doyle to Canada in 1914. A number of the albums contain photographs obtained from the Grand Trunk Pacific Railroad, one album of prints after the photographs of Charles Horetzky taken in the Canadian West 1871-1875, and photographs printed from negatives produced by J. Wesley Swan, J.H. Clark, Brown's Studio, Edmonton, Jessop's Studio, Gladstone, Manitoba, R. Sallows of Sarnia, Ontario, and R.J. Cleven.
