Helen and Harry Maxwell fonds

  • CA DMA CR-135
  • Fonds
  • 1908-1996

Fonds consists largely of photographs of Harry Maxwell's childhood, military service in the Fishermen's Reserve in WWII, and life as a fisherman; oral histories collected from Helen Maxwell which tell about growing up in Ladner, her mother Laure Clark's life, and Helen's career as a dress maker; and photographs of Harry and Helen's children, parents, home and friends. The textual records support the stories told by the photographs: Harry's military service records, birth and wedding certificates, and deeds to land purchases in Port Guichon.
