Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


These photographs were found while processing records in the Archives backlog. Attached with the photographs were undated notes identifying the images as part of the Wilson Duff fonds. There are penciled annotations on the back of the photographs, purpose unknown. It is also unclear if Duff acquired these records for personal or professional research use. There are some duplicate photographs, but they have been kept in order to preserve the integrity of the sub-series.

Terms governing use, reproduction, and publication

It is unclear if the museum has rights to reproduce these images. The majority of the photographs are stamped “Hickey + Robertson Photography” and include an address in Houston, Texas. Other photographs are stamped as copied from the National Museum of Canada. Researchers are therefore required to contact the photography company (or Canadian Museum of History) for permission to reproduce these images.
