    Custodial history

    Precise custodial information for this collection is not fully known. For a period of time the collection may have resided with the Planning and Development Department, City of Guelph. It is believed the library acquired the collection in the mid 1980s.

    Scope and content

    Collection consists of photographs and corresponding textual records for an inventory of homes built in Guelph before 1927. The inventory was created and/or accumulated by Gordon Couling, an artist and architectural expert.

    Records are arranged alphabetically into series by street name and then generally by street number, often with even numbered buildings filed separately from odd numbered buildings.
