Archival description area
The five albums were custom-bound with the name of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Museum stamped on the cover. They were apparently intended for display and browsing in the early Regimental Museum (ca. 1958).
Scope and content
The albums feature many styles of photography, including amateur snapshots, Army publicity action shots, and formal studio portraits. They include portraits of personalities, group portraits of military units and sports teams, battlefield scenes, exercises, and parades.
The 1914-1939 albums are fragile and have some images missing.
