Album includes photos of the McLean family in Fisherton, Ayrshire, Scotland. Jennie McLean Mann spent the duration of the Great War at her parents home in Scotland. There are wartime photos from both WWI and WWII in this album, however, only images from the family's time at Hatley Park (ca. 1911-1923) have been made available online.

Note that Charlie's father, William Edward John Mann was often known as Fred, as was Charlie (Charles Frederick). Descriptions here refer to them as WEJ and Charlie to avoid confusion.

Images within the photo albums follow the lives of Charlie and Jennie Mann and their two daughters, Helen Harriet (‘Helen’) and Dorothy Joan (‘Joan’). Charlie had a variety of employment throughout BC, including teamster and dairyman at Hatley Park (1911-1922), Fireman at Producer Sand and Gravel Pit, Royal Bay (1919-1921), Herdsman at Lakeview Farm, Duncan (1926-27) and Fintry Farm, Okanagan (1927-1933). He also worked for the forestry corps during WWII. Not all of the images were scanned from the albums, as the content was unrelated to the Mann family or Hatley Park. There are also images of the Scottish home of Jennie McLean. After their marriage in 1916, Jennie travelled with Charlie across the Atlantic. While Charlie served in the war, Jennie stayed with her parents and gave birth to their first child, Helen. They returned to Hatley Park when the war ended.
