Scope & Content
File consists of 33 black and white photographs, 10 x 15.5 cm or smaller. Photographs pertain to community events and scenic places in and around Banff, primarily in the 1920's and 1930's. Photographs document Banff Winter Carnival/Festival, Banff Indian Days, swimming at Cave and Basin, Moraine Lake, and Lake Minnewanka.
Notes
One photograph is annotated on the back, "Moraine Lake"
The swimsuits that were used at the Cave and Basin were rentals and resemble those used between ca. 1915 and 1930
3 photographs appear to be of a pharmacy; if it is Charlie Reid's pharmacy these photographs will date after 1936, as that is the year that Charlie opened his pharmacy. One of these photographs is annotated with "Part of our Fountain" on the back.

40 photographs : col. slides ; 10 x 8.2 cm Transparencies mounted as lantern slides.
History / Biographical
While most lantern slides are made of images that have been drawn, painted, printed, or developed directly onto a pane of glass, this collection consists of cellulose-based transparencies that have been placed within a paper border and secured between 2 panes of glass. Colour positive cellulose-based film first became available to consumers in 1941 when Kodak introduced Kodacolor print film, a process that involved taking photographs on black and white film and then developing them into full colour positives in a lab. In 1946, Kodak was able to simplify the development process with Ektachrome, which used a colour slide film and also made it much easier for photographers to develop their photos at home. Based on small notches cut into the edge of the films in this collection, these images were taken on Separation Negative 4133, Type 2, which was a type of black and white negative film produced by Kodak.
Scope & Content
Sub-series consists of lantern slides depicting Banff Springs Hotel, Banff Townsite, Lake Louise, Lake O’Hara, travel rides, Bow Lake, Yoho National Park.

Records include: Book of Common Prayer (1872); The Pocket Cook Book by Elizabeth Woody (1942); Guide to Marks of Origin on British and Irish Silver Plate from mid-16th Century to the Year 1943 and Old Sheffield Plate Makers' Marks, 1743-1860 (1943); four booklets related to the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies (1934-1950); a booklet titled "Sir George Simpson Centennial Celebration" (1928); an assortment of recipes; "The Margaret P.

Notes
Book of Common Prayer inscribed with: “Martha Morey, November 4, 1872. New Westminster, BC. From her mother.” It belonged to James Wardle's mother.
The Pocket Cook Book contains annotations and written notes tucked in among the pages of the book.
Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies booklets kept because the Wardles participated in trail rides and there are photos/mentions of James and Dorothy, and possibly Leette.
The "Sir George Simpson Centennial Celebration" booklet contains a photograph print between pages 32 and 33.
Some of the postcards are annotated on the back, specifically the postcard depicting the Banff Springs Hotel which is addressed to Dorothy.
