10 Photographs: prints; b&w and colour
Scope & Content
File consists of 10 photographic prints, (9 mounted and 1 loose, 8 b&w and 2 colour). Content includes multiple Canadian scenic photographs, (ships, winter scenes, landscapes), a gag photo of Nicholas Morant and another unidentified man titled 'Onions', a view of a village, possibly in Peru, depicting a person with a donkey travelling down a dirt road, and a gag photo of Morant wearing glasses and a hat (with caption "The Author (as a young man)" written on the back). Many of the prints in this file were taken early in Nicholas Morant's career (ca. 1936 - 1940), and most are dated and signed by Morant. One attributed to 'Associated Screen News', creator unknown.
Notes
Some of these photographs may have been published and used for professional purposes following their creation. However, the specific copies of the photographs contained within this file were used by Nicholas Morant for personal display, and therefore have been categorized as personal photography. Each print within this file was originally framed, and recently removed due to storage and conservation reasons. Some of these frames were annotated as follows: PA Oversize - 3: Label on back of frame reads "Hudson's Bay Company ART DEPARTMENT 13760 WINNIPEG" and "13760" PA Oversize - 7: Label on back of frame reads "The T. EATON Co. Limited OF MONTREAL PICTURE DEPARTMENT 47998 - 6" PA Oversize - 11: "NICHOLAS MORANT BOX 1288 BANFF ALBERTA" "Photo made at Kamloops B.C. 1936" "4827" (in large writing) PA Oversize - 12: "4827" (in large writing)
