Photographic albums, scrapbooks, binders and framed print
Scope and Content
This series consists of personal photographic albums, a framed print, scrapbooks and binders that Macnamara compiled between 1894 - 1944. They are arranged into four sub-series that reflect his activities as a photographer who used photography as both a scientific and artistic medium throughout this fifty year period.
The following sub-series are described in separate records in this database
This series consists of some of the earliest personal photograph albums that Charles Macnamara assembled. They contain self portraits, local scenes, shots of family and friends in Arnprior and Marshall's Bay. These albums were of a very personal nature and reflect a young man's attention to the family that surrounded him and the community of Marshall's Bay and Arnprior. These albums must be handled very gently.
This sub-series contains "Personals and Sundries" albums which have been taken out of binders and put into 6 acid free folders. Each album contains photographs and hand written observations compiled by Macnamara in scrap book form. The albums include prints from Macnamara's earliest glass plate negatives to photos taken shortly before his death in 1944. All prints were labelled and dated in a meticulous fashion by Macnamara.
