Scope & Content
File pertains to a photograph album depicting trips taken by Lillian Gest, usually during the summer, from 1934-1937. The 1934 trip was part of the Alpine Club of Canada Annual Camp in northern Jasper National Park - starting in the Eremite Mountain area and working east towards Mount Edith Cavell. Also includes a few photographs of mountains around the Banff town area. The 1935 trip was part of the ACC Annual Camp in the Mt. Assiniboine and East Kootenay areas. Also includes newspaper clippings pertaining to Club activities and greeting cards from Club members. The photographs associated with the Yoho Icefields from Bow Lake trip are most likely from the summer of 1936 based on greeting cards labelled as such, but very few of the photographs themselves are annotated. The remainder of the album is dedicated to the 1937 trips to Mt. Trident, Mt. Bryce, the Columbia Icefield area, Bryce and Zion, Utah, the Boulder Dam, Arizona, and Colorado. Also includes Christmas cards from 1937 from various friends and Club members. Inserts pertain to the overview/advertisements for the summer 1937 and 1938 trips that would have been sent out by Caroline Hinman in advance detailing routes, expectations, and prices ; a small photograph with a written note on the back, a letter addressed to Lillian Gest from the Springfield Television Broadcasting Corp, and a handwritten list of details pertaining to the summer 1934 trip orgainized by Caroline Hinman.

Material

Description
A set of bead strip decorations for costume, all of beaded canvas with white background containing a singular complex diamond motif with green central diamond outlined in orange with red bars from the sides and orange barred triangles and red bars from the top and bottom points. These are alternated with a motif of two blue diamonds outlined in green hanging from a red bar, and two more diamonds standing atop the bar. Each strip is edged with a narrow red band. (a) long strip (79.0 x 8.8) contains three orange motifs (possibly legging or shoulder strip), lined with muslin. (b) cravat and collar (25.0 x 20.0) wide cravat contains single orange motif, with smaller orange motif at centre and ends of pointed collar which is attached to cravat on one end, and ties to cravat with thong at other side, lined with muslin.

(e,f) 2 short (30.0 x 8.8) single orange motif at centre with complete blue diamond motif at one end, and half this same motif at the other (the two pieces may at one time have been joined together at this point into a single long strip). One end of each strip cut at an angle with a series of short red bars edging rather than the red band. (g,h) 2 gauntlet shaped pieces (19.5 x 29.0) - single large orange motif at centre flanked by small blue diamond motifs; a line of red bars runs along each side, and a series of small green triangles outlined in red hang from the red border at the slightly curved top. (i) large H-shaped piece (72.0 x 28.5) made up of two long strips with square panel between; fringed at bottom of square panel and at bottoms of strips with slashed white buckskin fringe. Long notched buckskin strap at top, and two buckskin thongs sewn to each side at the middle. Single large orange motif in central square. Strips on side each contain three orange motifs with the blue diamond motif between and half the blue motif at each end (probably part of caparison for pony).
