Scope and content

The album contains black and white and sepia photographs and other ephemera of St. Anthony, the Grenfell Mission, and the scenes of Newfoundland. A couple pages of photographs are dated January 1924, but the majority are undated. Two items are dated 1912 in the caption. The photographs depict landscapes, coastlines, boats, and local scenes in places such as St. Anthony and St. Johns. Dog sleds are the subject of many of photographs, as well as other winter sports like snowshoeing. Various staff members at the Grenfell Mission and their families are featured and are named in captions. In addition to photographs, there are clippings tipped in, black and white postcards, many depicting fishing, seal hunting, and boat operations, and colour postcards, chiefly of St. Johns, Newfoundland. One group photograph features Indigenous people from the region.
