Custodial history

Scope and content

This series is comprised primarily of images of Mi'kmaq families living in Rocky Point in the 1890s or early 1900s. Most of the individuals are unidentified; however, these 23 images are a significant visual record of how the people lived and worked in the late 19th century documenting their summer homes, the traditional pyramid-shaped wigwam, and their basket weaving skills. In addition, are a few images taken on Lennox Island: portraits (including a couple of Chief John Thomas Sark), the school, and the church.
