At Ashnola, May 24, 1892

The file consists of one album of 22 photographs, including front and back covers, created to commemorate a gathering at Ashnola on Queen Victoria’s birthday. Photographs include portraits of friends of the Langley family (including the Dunsmuir and Turner families). The order of the album follows the order of the events of the day, including a regatta at the Gorge.

Most photographs have been cut into circles and adhered to album pages with unknown adhesive. They have been decoratively framed with 2-3 hand drawn concentric circles in blue ink. Additional identifying text possibly added by Archives staff, Craigdarroch staff, or the donor.
