Scope and content

Volume 1 is a red cloth-bound album with a burgundy leather spine and corner accents. "The Gift of C. Berkeley Powell" is inscribed in gold leaf on the bottom of front cover, and "Powell Scrap-Book I" is engraved on the spine. The scrapbook consists of 50 sheets of light cardstock, and a back section that contains 13 sheets of lined paper. The looseleaf section is gradually becoming unbound, and the tissue paper that separates individual pages has become extremely brittle. Items in this album are not strictly arranged chronologically. The album begins with the Siege of Québec City and the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, 1759, where the French troops under the command of the Marquis de Montcalm fought the English forces led by General Wolfe. Several documents from ca.1760 are the earliest items in the album, and include maps and engravings of battles and commanding officers related to the Siege. From there the album deals with other battles fought by the British army and Canadian volunteer militia up until Confederation, 1867. In this volume Berkeley Powell has collected mainly pictorial items dealing with British-focused ships, regiments, uniforms, munitions, soldiers, commemorative plaques, war medals, etc. Also collected were general scenes of fortifications and landscapes.
