A destroyed British tank, exact mark unknown

  • CA RRU 025-002-1-3-319
  • Item
  • 1921-1924
  • Part of K. McCann

In the early 1920s, Dunsmuir sisters, Dola and Muriel, and Muriel’s husband, Edward Molyneux, took time to tour the ruins of Europe in the aftermath of the war. Edward Molyneux was an ideal tour guide for the sisters, having served in 1915 with the Duke of Wellington Regiment on the Western Front. Although he was promoted to Captain for his actions in battle, injury resulted in the loss of sight in his left eye and withdrawal from active duty.

  • CA RRU 025-002
  • Fonds
  • ca. 1890-1965, predominant 1908-1940

The fonds consists of photographs handed down through generations in the Dunsmuir family, some of the images are copies made for each of the Dunsmuir family members so there is some duplication across albums. The photo dates range from the late 1800s up to the 1960s. They include images of Hatley Castle, designed by Samuel Maclure, the Japanese Garden, Italian Garden and the Rose Garden and surrounding grounds designed by the Boston landscape architectural firm of Brett and Hall. Buildings on the property include the stables, garage, tennis courts, barns and a Lord and Burnham designed greenhouse. There are also many images of Dunsmuir family members, friends, visitors to Hatley Park and other properties, and trips to other destinations. These people and locations are not always identified.

Additionally, ephemera in this fonds includes an original copy of the Crimson Paradise film premiere program, with autographs from some of the cast, as well as the 1939 Maynard auction catalogue and the visitors book from Dolaura. This book was used first on the family yacht and includes a signature from Kaiser Wilhelm in 1908. In later years, Dola (Dunsmuir) Cavendish (1903-1966), used the book at her home, which was also named Dolaura. A number of celebrity signatures can be found here.

  • CA RRU 025-002-1-6
  • File
  • ca. 1890-1910
  • Part of K. McCann

Images in this album are predominantly from before the Dunsmuir family lived at Hatley Park. There are several images of the Dunsmuir children living at Burleith, their home on Victoria's Gorge waterway from 1892 until 1906 when James Dunsmuir became the province's Lieutenant-Governor and the family moved to Government House. There are also pictures taken in the UK soon after Maye was married to Lt. Arthur Bromley in 1904. Also included are images from an apparent tourist trip to visit goldrush settlements such as Bennett, Dawson City and Whitehorse. Along with these are souvenir photos of Atlin, BC, by noted photographer A.C. Hirshfeld. James Dunsmuir travelled to Atlin in 1901 as part of the provincial government's 'Atlin Committee' investigating mining licenses issued to aliens, among other things.
