Scope and content

File is a large family photograph album with a light brown leather cover and a metal clasp containing 121 photographic prints, the bulk of which are card-mounted studio portraits that document several generations of the Maynard family. Many of the photographs are attributed to photographer Hannah Maynard but there are also works of other commercial photographers including those identified as “H Thorn” (Bude Haven), “E.W. Burnham Photo” (Cannington, Ontario), “Bradley & Ruloeson” and “J. Hawke” (Plymouth). The album includes popular Maynard family images that appear in other Maynard family albums, including photographs of Hannah and Richard Maynard and their children (George, Albert Hatherly, Emma, Zela and Laura Lillian Maynard) and grandchildren (including John Ridgemen and Richard James Maynard) who are depicted in individual and group portraits.

Notes area

Physical condition

The spine is damaged, deteriorating and album pages are partially detached from the binding. There are signs of deterioration (spotting) on some of the prints and surface dirt on some of the album pages. Some photographic prints are housed in pockets with tears. There are also several loose prints and other materials contained within album pages, causing the items to slip out when the item is handled.
