The fonds consists of the working files and drawings of J.P. Cahorn Engineering, which are arranged chronologically and alphabetically and filed according to his project numbers, which start with the year (although there are some conflicts in his system). They include information from other sources. He acted as a consultant on a variety of very different sites and/or buildings, mostly in the City of Peterborough but also throughout Peterborough County and beyond. Most of his work was related to structural engineering of new and existing sites and buildings for residential, industrial and commercial projects. He dealt with small and large projects, from someone’s garage addition to a 4-story condominium building. He consulted for residents, businesses, industries, cities, townships and public organizations. His approach to projects was always diligent, thorough, and consistent.

Dates: 1975 to 2010

Fonds consists of slides, 1975, and photo prints, 1989-2010, taken at public events held throughout the Peterborough Region. The slides for 1975 relate to the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Robinson settlers of 1825 and the Peterborough Exhibition, founded in 1843, marking belatedly its 100th anniversary.

The prints were taken at events connected with the Market Hall Clock Tower; the Santa Claus Parade; the Liftlock; Fourth Line Theatre; Festival of Trees; YWCA fire; Showplace; Special Olympics; Memorial Cup in Hockey; Lang Century Village; Havelock; Lakefield; Peterborough Airport; Nicholls Oval dog show; garden tours; road races; lawn bowling; Beavermead; Millennium Place; Canadian Canoe Museum; Pathway of Fame; Millennium Park; King Edward School; Memorial Centre; Alderville; Trent University; Artsweek; Lakefield Literary Festival; local churches; PCVS [Peterborough Collegiate and Vocational School]; Little Lake; Dragon Festivals; Peterborough Regional Hospital Complex [PRHC] and more.

Particularly large files include several with photographs related to King Edward School and Park; the construction of the new Peterborough Regional Hospital (336 prints); Trent University; and the Liftlock Centennial.

This is a remarkable collection because of the quality of the photography and the wide range of events she covered. Many of the events were covered by other photographers; but none had this range.
