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. It is a gelatin dry glass plate negative (6.5x8.5 inches). The image design includes a central square with eleven previous Gems of British Columbia works positioned around the top and side edges. This negative does not appear to have been manipulated. The following text is present at the bottom of the image: Gems of British Columbia. Faces of children are included inside the letters of text in the image, as well as in the central square. There is also a single child placed in between each Gems of British Columbia work situated at the top. It is attributed to being the Gem for 1891. It is an alternative photograph to the work depicted in the negative described as J-04558. Two tongs and the sides of a chair are visible, holding the framed work up to be photographed in an unknown location.
