Photographic Canadiana 38-2

All members should have issue 38-2 soon or by now – it hit the postoffice the beginning of this week.

Issue 38-2 from Left: Cover with Child Portrait from late 1870s, Matt Isenburg and wife Elizabeth at the time his collection was sent to Toronto, the tintype of three British soldiers assigned to Canada during the Fenian raids, Stan White’s Kodak Deux, and speakers Alana West and Dr Irwin Reichstein.

The image on the front cover, c1870s, is worth a year’s membership alone! It is a Chromotype with that process’s typical sharp darks and warm tones. The lead story is the sale of Matt Isenburg’s fabulous Daguerreian collection to the Toronto AMC . This is followed by a lengthy and  well researched report called  A Soldier’s Tintype. Dating back to the Fenian raids shortly before Confederation, the soldiers in the tintype have been meticulously researched by member Louise Freyburger. Louise has a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science and her work is a valuable addition to the writings of our journal. In Toronto Notes, Mark Singer reports on the last two Toronto speakers before the summer break (Alana West in May, and Dr Irwin Reichstein in June, both of whom won PHSC awards for their work), Treasures column covers Stan White’s Kodak Duex, and this issue wraps up with George Dunbar’s always interesting column, Browsing through our Exchanges.
