Images in this fonds are pages from an album compiled by Ella Hayward and show the Hayward family at Hatley Park from 1910 to 1920 as well as newspaper clippings about Dunsmuir family members. Ella Hayward was born in Victoria in 1907 to Philip Francis and Minnie Hayward. Philip Francis Hayward was employed at Hatley Park between 1910 and 1920 as a florist and likely also as manager of the glasshouse complex. At this time, the Hayward family lived in the gardener’s cottage at Hatley Park, just outside the west side of the walled garden, near the greenhouse and conservatory. A second daughter, Frances Hayward, was born in 1913, while the family lived at Hatley Park. Philip Francis Hayward left Hatley Park employment around 1920 and in 1923 he and his family moved to California where he continued his career as a florist.
