Custodial history

Scope and content

The series consists of photographs predominantly depicting Essondale (Riverview Hospital) and Colony Farm. The photographs include scenes of Essondale's West Lawn building 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 general pastoral scenes. Some of the photos 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 the collection are thought to depict the Public Hospital for the Insane in New Westminster, B.C.

Documentation accompanying the transfer suggested that other photographs in the series (see Subseries 04) depict the Dominion Experimental Farm in Agassiz, BC; however, the barns do not match extant photographs of the Agassiz farm, therefore it has not been possible to confirm the location.

Physical condition

Some glass negatives are damaged. Consult finding aids and lower level descriptions for more details.

Arrangement

The series has been arranged in several ways. 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).
