Guelph Mercury fonds

  • CA ON00126 F45
  • Fonds
  • [1960?] - [1999?]

Fonds consists primarily of photographic negatives and prints created by the Guelph Mercury in the course of its journalistic activities. In addition to images that appeared in the newspaper, this fonds includes other images that were taken for newspaper stories but were never actually used.

The photographs are arranged into 18 artificial series by subject. The Library of Congress Thesaurus for Graphic Materials serves as a basis for this arrangement.

Due to the size of this collection not all of the negatives have been described and or digitized.
