Scope and content

This series is comprised of images of John, Adaline, and Aldyen Hendry, including John Hendry's mother, Margaret, and a woman thought to be his grandmother. The images primarily concentrate between the years 1900-1912, from the time Aldyen was crowned May Queen (1901) to her presentation at Court (1911), and subsequent marriage to Eric W. Hamber (1912). John Hendry is pictured in Scotland and in Cairo in December 1911 while on a continental motor tour with his family. John Hendry was president of the British Columbia Mills Timber & Trading Company during this period, but little or nothing exists here or elsewhere in the collection that attests to this fact. The family residence, mausoleum, and caskets are pictures in the Hendry family series. The photographic processes that the series contains are varied and impressive. There are examples of wet-process developing, hand-colouring, solar photography, photo-mechanical and fine art photography. A velvet triptych frame (ca. 1850) that originally contained card photographs of John Hendry, his mother, and grandmother is cross-referenced.
The textual records in this series include marriage certificates, news clippings, and other material.
