375Fairbairn Photographs

Dates: 1892-1905

The fonds consists of a total of 189 plate glass negatives, most of which measure approximately 12.7×17.7 cm [5″ x 7″]. These were created by at least 3 different photographers between 1892 and 1905 at various locations in Peterborough County, Alberta, and British Columbia. The collection contains many culturally significant pieces, including views of work on the Trent Severn Waterway ca. 1900, views of Stoney Lake and Juniper Point, and portraits of prominent Peterboronians and their homes in the 1890s and early 1900s.

The first accession is divided into five series:

Series A, “Surveying Series” and “Beaverton”: Contains 17 negatives dating from 1900-01 and is divided into two sub-series. “Surveying Series” includes views of surveying and mining work at Cardston, AB and Greenwood, BC. “Beaverton” contains views of lakes, houses, mills, churches, and stores in or around Beaverton, ON.

Series B, “Trent Valley Canal Building”: Contains 21 negatives dating from 1900-01. Includes views of workers and surveyors, horses, and machinery at different locations along the Peterborough County portion of the Trent Severn Waterway.

Series C, “Stoney Lake”: Contains 61 negatives, some dating from 1900-01 and others dating from 1985-96. Views include Juniper Point (and “Juniper Lodge”), Sheriff Hall’s cottage, canoes at Eels Creek, Jack’s Creek, Grubbe’s Island, Julien’s Landing, Devil’s Elbow, Indian River, McCraken’s Landing, and more. Some images taken in Westmount, Quebec.

Series D, “Peterborough Houses”: Contains 72 negatives, some dating from around 1893-94 and others from around 1905-07. Includes views of Merino, Cordach, Hazelbrae, Idyl Wyld, John Robertson’s house on Bonaccord St., the side yard of what is today 361 Park Street, and others.

Series E, “Portraits: Jack Fairbairn et al”: Contains 18 negatives, most of them undated. One from 1893. The subseries “Jack Fairbairn as a Little Boy” includes formal portraits of Jack Fairbairn Jr. as an infant and even a view of him only a few days after his birth. Other views include some of the Fairbairns “at Hermitage” as well as two images of a Mrs. MacFarlane.

There is reason to believe that, in some cases at least, the dates written on the original envelopes were applied much later. For instance, D42 and D46 were more than likely taken the same day since the views are nearly identical, and nearly all items in the photos match. Yet each was given a different year (1903 and 1905).

An accrual was received in November of 2014

Accession 2 consists of:

Series F: Glass Plates
Series G: Negatives
Series H: Studio portraits by Peterborough photographers G. B. Sproule, G. E. Whiten and P. H. Green taken between about 1885 and 1900.

Dates: 1900-2003

The fonds consists of high-resolution scans of approximately 230 colour, sepia, and black and white vintage postcard images of Peterborough, Lindsay, and various locations in the Kawartha Lakes region. All originals measure approximately 9×14 cm. The scans include the front and back of each card (labelled “a” and “b” respectively); these were scanned (at a resolution of 600 dpi) and labelled by the donor before donation. All paper originals remain with the donor; he has donated only the scans to TVA to use for public research, publications (when copyright allows), and TVA publicity.

The overwhelming majority of the original cards date ca. 1900 to 1920; others date from 1920 to 1945; and a small portion of the original cards date from the late 1940s to the mid- to late-1970s. Most of the original cards are mass-produced cards consisting of lithographed images printed onto standard cardstock; others are real photograph postcards (RPPCs) which are black and white photographic images printed (from negatives) onto 9×14 cm photographic paper and rubber-stamped on the back. Many of the early cards were manufactured by the Valentine & Sons postcard company (which had offices in Toronto and, incidentally, used Roy Studio images on their cards) and the International Stationary Company of Picton. Others were produced by more local manufacturers, among them the Roy Studio.

The collection is organized into three major series:

Series A – Peterborough: Business and Industry, Churches and Cemeteries, Downtown Streets, Educational Institutions, Hospitals and Homes, Hotels, Otonabee River (Bridges, Lift Locks, Marinas and River Views), Parks and Campgrounds, Railway Stations, Recreation and Entertainment, Services and Public Buildings, and Misc.
