Scope and content
A photograph of one of the completed Gems of British Columbia works by Hannah Maynard, part of a series of photocollages created in the 1880s and 1890s. The image design includes a large scroll in the centre with ten Gems of British Columbia works from previous years positioned at the bottom edge of the work. The portraits of children are included inside the central scroll, with babies lining the side and bottom edges. The fountain from a previous Gems of British Columbia work is located in the bottom right corner. This negative does not appear to have been manipulated. The following text is present on the image: Gems of B.C. Two tongs are visible, holding the framed work up to be photographed. It is attributed to being the Gem for 1890.
The item described here appears to be a preservation glass plate negative, perhaps created by BC Archives. It is not yet clear whether BC Archives hold the original glass plate negative.
