Name of creator
William Edgar Knowles Middleton was an amateur photographer from Vancouver. He was also a researcher and writer on meteorological instruments, meteorology and general science. He was an honorary member of the American Meteorological Society.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of two albums containing Middleton's photographs depicting Stanley Park, downtown Vancouver, the West End, Gastown, beaches, buildings, ships, docks, bridges and monuments. Middleton created edited prints and the fonds contains one edited print and the original unedited negative for nearly all of the photographs.
Immediate source of acquisition
- Fonds came to archives in 2 or 3 albums (conflicting documentation). After arriving at the archives, the albums were broken down into individual pages and it is unclear the album from which each photograph originated from.
- Fonds was previously referred to using the identifier CVA 293.
