Biographical history

Lawrence Robert Charles Drury-Lowe, 1883-1941, a Captain in the Scots Guards, was a member of a large, well-to-do military family from central England. He visited Alberta, Canada ca. 1911-1913. He married Beryl Evelyn King in 1917 and they had one daughter, Anne Beryl, 1925- , who married Sir Francis Salwey William Winnington, 1907-1993.

Archival history

Lady Anne Winnington auctioned her family collection in late 2013 and this album was purchased by Cameron Treleaven of Aquila Books. It is not entirely clear who assembled the album but it seems likely it was Lawrence, his wife, or one of his siblings.

Immediate source of acquisition or transfer

Content and structure area

Scope and content

The fonds consists of a photo album containing some family photographs and images of their travels, as well as greeting cards and other miscellany. The bulk of the images however, show a trip to Alberta around 1911-1913, including views of Calgary, Lethbridge, Crowsnest Pass, Banff and other Alberta locales. Several dozen of the Lethbridge images were taken by Arthur Rafton Canning, 1865-1952, who operated the British & Colonial Photographic Company in Lethbridge from 1907 to 1913.
