Scott Studio fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1890-1981, predominant 1910-1955

Fonds consists of approximately 100,000 photographic negatives in glass-plate, nitrate and cellulose-acetate form. Most negatives correspond to Murray Scott's tenure with the studio between 1911 and 1955. Included within the few early negatives that do exist is perhaps the most famous photograph to come from St. Thomas and Elgin County, the death of Jumbo the Elephant shortly after being hit by a Canada Southern Locomotive in 1885. The Scott Studio was the official or unofficial photographer for a number of organizations within the community, including Elgin County Council, Alma College, the YMCA, the Elgin Regiment, local schools (such as St. Thomas Collegiate Institute) and the Technical Training School of the Royal Canadian Air Force during the Second World War. Railway photographs are particularly abundant within the fonds. The studio was commissioned to take photographs on behalf of the Pere Marquette Railway, Michigan Central Railway and New York Central Railway, including stations and crossings throughout the lines (and therefore extending throughout southern Ontario). The most abundant shots in this regards date to the 1930s and 1940s. The majority of the fonds (perhaps ninety per cent) consists of portrait photography of local weddings, special events and individuals.
The fonds consists of three series:
-Photographic negatives series, ca. 1890 - 1981 (predominant 1910 - 1955)
-Scott Family business records series, 1879-1955
-Sefton Family records series, 1878-1989
