Historique de la conservation
The material was transferred to the Riverview Hospital Historical Society through several avenues. The photographs in Subseries 01 and Subseries 04 were transferred from the Coquitlam Heritage Society in 2012, having been part of a larger series of glass negatives that were purchased by the Heritage Society some time in the early 2000's.
The photographs in Subseries 02 and Subseries 03 were part of John Davidson's collection. Much of his collection was transferred to the Archives of the UBC Botanical Gardens, however, the photographs relating to Riverview and Colony Farm were transferred to the Riverview Hospital Historical Society.
Portée et contenu
The series consists of photographs predominantly depicting aspects of social and administrative life at Riverview Hospital and the School of Psychiatric Nursing as well as and Colony Farm. The photographs in the series portray the everyday social life of Riverview Hospital staff and volunteers as well as events, meetings, gatherings, and kinds of work they undertook. Additionally the series depicts scenes of Riverview Hospital's many buildings in varying states of completion, portraits of prize winning livestock (Holstein cattle, Clydesdale and Belgian horses), scenes during periods of flooding at Colony Farm, and equipment, vehicles, and technology used by the Hospital.
The glass plate negatives in Subseries 01 and 04 are known to have been taken by W.J. Moore, a prominent Vancouver photographer. It is possible that the entire collection was taken by W.J. Moore, although it has not been possible to confirm. Some photographs in Subseries 02 are thought to depict the Provincial Hospital for the Insane in New Westminster. Photographs in Subseries 04 are also thought to depict the Dominion Experimental Farm in Agassiz, B.C.
Record types consists largely of silver gelatin negatives in large format cellulose acetate sheets and cellulose acetate film strips. The subseries also contains a collection of glass plate negatives, chromogenic colour negative film strips and large format sheets, silver gelatin DOP prints, a photograph album, and a scrapbook.

État de conservation
The series has been arranged into five Subseries by several archivists throughout its custody at the City of Coquitlam Archives. The arrangement is:
Subseries 01: Assorted photographs of Colony Farm (Glass Negatives)
Subseries 02: Essondale (Riverview Hospital) photographs
Subseries 03: Colony Farm and Assorted Locations photographs
Subseries 04: Unidentified Farm photographs
Subseries 05: Assorted photographs of Riverview Hospital
Subseries 01 and Subseries 04 have been arranged according to the numbering system imposed by the original donor or by the Coquitlam Heritage Society. This numbering system has been maintained as it corresponds to the copy prints.
The additional glass negatives had no obvious original order so the archivist divided them into two subseries: Subseries 02 (Essondale photographs) and Subseries 03 (Colony Farm and Assorted Locations photographs).
Subseries 05 consists largely of the accruals from Riverview Hospital Historical Society as well as the accruals from the British Columbia Government Records Service. Neither had a discernible order, so the archivist grouped them by subject matter apparent in the photographs and larger functional groups in their original file lists. Within these divisions the records are arranged chronologically.
