Brian Swan Collection

Photographs from the collection of Brian Swan of La Peche, Quebec, which includes Cornelius settler John Stuart Thompson, the first school teacher in Harvey Settlement. Brian inherited the photo album from his grandmother Ella Jessie Swan (née Thompson) who provided the image identification. Most photographs in this collection are tin types and were taken in the latter part of the 19th century. The collection is valuable in that it not only includes photographs of a broad spectrum of Harvey settlers, but that the subjects in every single photograph are identified.
