Description
Framed chromatype photographic watercolour painting of two girls or women, identified as the Tedford sisters. On the left is Olive Cecelia (Tedford) Pierce of Alvinston, and on the right is Hazel Camila Tedford. The girls wear identical outfits and both have brown hair. They wear their hair up, gathered behind their heads and decorated with a large, blue bow. They wear blue dresses with white ruffled necks and a vertical section of pleated fabric down their chests. Both wear a gold or yellow locket or necklace. They appear in a black vignette, and the image has a dark blue-green background. Image displayed in a wooden frame and overlaid with glass. Frame consists of four connected frame. From the innermost to the outermost frame: a frame with an ornate organic pattern and overlaid with gold leaf; a white frame incised with repeating parallel lines; a frame with an ornate organic pattern and overlaid with gold leaf; and a white frame incised with repeating parallel lines. Text in pencil on masking tape identify the girls at the upper right corner on the back of the frame. Both a chain and a wire is attached to the back of the frame. The contents of the frame are held in place by two thin pieces of wood. Chromatypes, photo-crayotypes, or crayon collotypes, were produced through the hand-colouring of photographs by the application of crayons or pigments over a photographic impression. To create a "crayon enlargement" such as this sketch, one would use a magic lantern to project the photograph onto the back of the drawing paper or canvas, on which the artist could sketch the projected image and add detail in graphite, charcoal, chalk, or watercolour as said artist saw fit.

Description
Framed chromatype photographic watercolour painting of a baby, identified as Earl Dean Adams (March 8, 1900 - December 5, 1974). The baby's head is at the center of the image, and we see the neckline and shoulders of the frock or gown that the baby wears. The baby has little hair, pink-tinted cheeks and lips, and faces forward, toward the viewer. Frills or ruffles surround the neck of the gown. The image has a white vignette and a teal or green-blue background. Displayed in a wood and plaster frame and overlaid with glass. The inner border of the frame is higher than the outer border, and is overlaid with gold leaf. It has a scale-like pattern of repeating lanceolate shapes. The outer border is stained or painted a dark brown, and has an ornate, repeating botanical or organic pattern of swirls interspersed with flowers and palm-like motifs. The contents of the frame are held in place by a piece of white cardboard. A piece of wire is attached to a loop at either side of the back of the frame. Chromatypes, photo-crayotypes, or crayon collotypes, were produced through the hand-colouring of photographs by the application of crayons or pigments over a photographic impression. To create a "crayon enlargement" such as this sketch, one would use a magic lantern to project the photograph onto the back of the drawing paper or canvas, on which the artist could sketch the projected image and add detail in graphite, charcoal, chalk, or watercolour as said artist saw fit.

Artist Notes
Daisy Cole (neé Irvin) was a self-taught artist at the time of this piece (age 49), though later took painting classes in Ingersoll in the 1980s. This piece was inspired by a photograph printed in the Aylmer Express associated with its article on the fire.

Description
Oil painting of the "Aylmer Fire" of February 26th, 1965, by Daisy Cole. We see Talbot St., facing west. The fire itself is in the middle ground, in the center of the road. The flames rise above the buildings, spreading to those on the right. The smoke fills the sky at the right side of the image. In the center of the image is a relatively large, blue vehicle. Other vehicles line both sides of the street. Closer to the viewer are three silhouetted figures, holding one of the hoses which spread across the snowy street. One figure, fully lit, in a brown outfit, stands at the right side of the road. We see signs for "Faulds CLEANERS" and "FOODLAND MARKET," and "SPICER'S BAKERY" is just barely legible. The artist's signature, "D. COLE," is in the lower left corner, along one of the hoses in the street. The painting does not have a frame. On the back of the canvas is a sticker which bears Daisy Cole's name and address, along with a small picture of a cardinal. The canvas is of the Reeves & Sons Ltd. brand.

Women’s Institutes The Women’s Institute branches have had a deep, positive effect on their respective communities. Under the motto “Home and Country” members engaged in efforts such as knitting hundreds of pairs of socks for local First World War soldiers, making tons of preserves for British and European families in both World Wars and leading the drive towards pasteurized milk in Ontario. They contributed to scholarships and held fundraisers for the local hospitals. Women came together under the banner of the Federated Women’s Institutes and worked tirelessly to make life better for their families, their neighbours and the world beyond. Aylmer The Aylmer Branch of the Women’s Institute was formed in 1902, the first in Elgin County. The Aylmer Branch was active until 1987.

Notes
The Battle of Courcelette, part of the Somme offensive during WWI, was fought from September 15-22, 1916. On the side of the Allies were the British, French, and Canadian, and Germany represented the Axis Powers. The 22nd (French-Canadian) and 25th (of Nova Scotia) Battalions were able to capture the village of Courelette, defending it from German attack for three more days, resulting in Allied victory. Canadian victories like these helped bring Canada to the world stage as a legitimate country.

Description
Black and white photograph of a painting. In the painting an older, bearded man sits with a hand over his mouth and leans over a child. The child lies in a makeshift bed composed of blankets and pillows draped over two dining chairs. In the background is a woman sitting at a dining table with her head in her arms. Behind the woman is a man with his hand on her shoulder. The photograph is displayed in a dark wooden frame and a grey mottled matting with a black inner border, overlaid with glass. The back of the frame is covered in a silver-coloured paper decorated with starbursts. Taped to the back is a sheet of letter-sized printer paper. It reads: Phone 773-9234, 155 Talbot Street West, Dr. D.W. Sinclair, Aylmer, Ontario, N5H 1J9. A remembrance of the famous painting "The Doctor" by Sir Luke Fildes, R.A. According to a recent account, the picture shows a scene in a forester's cottage on the Braemar Estate, North Scotland, where Balmoral Castle is situated. The time is that of 'Victoria the Good.' The woman in the picture had been an old and favorite servant of the Queen. After many years of married life, this little child came to them. She was stricken with a serious illness. The Queen telegraphed to London for her own physician. He came by special train and remained in constant attendance until after the crisis. The child recovered and later the Queen requested the artist to paint the scene in commemoration of the faithful devotion of the physician. The 'sculpticolor' rendition is dedicated by Petrolagar to that friend of all mankind, the family doctor."

Framed lithographic print. Three men stand at the rocky bank of a river, holding extremely long fishing rods. They wear tophats, long, buttoned jackets with ascots, and tall boots. One of the men climbs down from the cliffs above to where the other two already stand, with their lines in the water. The man in the foreground wears a basket on his back which holds a salmon. A net lays on the ground to his left. We can see two waterfalls in the background. Above the furthest waterfall is a white building with two towers and a brown roof. The print has a wide, white border, and is titled "SALMON FISHING." Along its bottom are the words "H. Alken delt, Published 1820, I. Clark sculpt." It is displayed in a wooden frame and overlaid with glass. The frame is painted largely black, with thin strips of gold decorated with a repeating pattern of small circles or dots.
