The images are from Laura Catterall Ferguson’s family album. The images mostly concern the construction of Hatley Park and the Catterall’s residence on the property during construction. Head contractor Thomas Catterall’s son, Harry, also worked on the project and lived on site with his wife Ada (Gladding) Catterall. Their two young children, Helen and Tommie were also on site. Tommie Catterall also worked for the Dunsmuirs at Hatley Park as a general handyman in the 1930s and there is an oral history interview with this Tom Catterall available in the archives. The photocopied album pages from where the images were scanned contain useful contextual information about the family and the timeline for construction.
