Scope and Content
View of the beach and Hopkins Casino, Port Stanley, ca. 1920. The penny arcade with various amusements including a carousel, and the London and Port Stanley Railway Cafeteria and Bath House (opened in 1917) are visible in the background to the west (left) of the Casino. The London and Port Stanley Railway Dance Pavilion (later known as the Stork Club), which was opened in July, 1926, is not visible, so this photograph pre-dates 1926. A label affixed to the back of the copy print reads: "In 1908, James Hopkins, in connection with several investors, purchased the bath house owned by Thomas Hough at the end of William St. and erected the Port Stanley Beach Casino. It was one of the most successful ventures ever undertaken in the village & could boast having the largest ballroom in Canada until 1926. The photo here shows the last edition of the casino as it appeared in the 1920s. To the left is the penny arcade." The casino was enlarged several times before it was destroyed by fire in April, 1932.

Scope and Content
Hopkins Casino dance hall, Port Stanley, ca. 1925. Constructed in 1909 and officially opened on July 1, 1909 under its original name, the Stanley Beach Casino. Later purchased by St. Thomas photographer James H. Hopkins and renamed. Prior to the construction of the London & Port Stanley Railway Dance Pavilion (later known as the Stork Club) in 1926, the Casino was the largest summer dance hall in Canada. When Hopkins Casino was destroyed by fire in April, 1932, it is said that the flames could be seen from across Lake Erie in Cleveland, Ohio. The Orion Hotel is visible in the background: the two-story porch has been removed, but the building still stands on the west side of William Street, Port Stanley, opposite Lotis Lane and has been in use recently as a residential outpatient clinic for patients of the St. Thomas Psychiatric Hospital.

Scope and Content
Drawing depicting the incline railway and observation tower, Port Stanley, looking east, ca. 1880. William Fraser built the incline railway in the 1870s to allow guests at the Fraser House hotel on Fraser Heights to conveniently travel to and from the main beach. The observation tower was built adjacent to the incline railway as an attraction for visitors. The incline railway was originally powered by a steam locomotive. It was purchased by the London and Port Stanley Railway and electrified in 1915. The incline railway ceased operating ca. 1963 when its open cars were deemed unsafe and the owners decided it was not cost effective to convert to closed cars. View also includes the pedestrian walkway along the cliff top on Fraser Heights in front of the Fraser House hotel, Port Stanley main beach (at this time completely undeveloped), an early version of the west pier and lighthouse, and a schooner entering the harbour. This image has been copied from an unknown publication. File includes:

Photographs of people sun bathing and swiming at Port Stanely beach and pier. Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal on June 29, 1949, page one: ‘Bathing at ‘Port” Off to an Early Start.” 2_1498: “The weather, so favorably hot this year, has brought hundreds of bathers to Port Stanley’s favorite spot, the main beach, to spend the day enjoying the water and bright sunshine. This photograph, taken but two weeks ago, shoes the long beach that attracts so many people year after year. Safe bathing conditions have made a splendid record for “Port,” and this year, the lifeguard will have an addition to his equipment, a motorboat, and to keep things orderly, will be given the authority of a special constable. With shade trees all along the shore close to the lake, the break at Port Stanley provides a place of enjoyment for both sun-bathers and those who prefer to sit under a tree.”

Scope and Content
Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published June 7, 1960 with caption: " Well over 30 Port Stanley people and several St. Thomas residents spent last night with rakes and shovels cleaning up the beach. The men raked the debris into piles and the sand was soon dotted with small fires as a year's accumulation of trash was cleaned up and burned. Some of the men are pictured above about to light one of the fires. They are from left to right, Alan Burke, Norm Pullen, Charles Locke, Jack Brumpton, Don Kay, Ken Neil, James Quinn, Ross Hepburn, and Arthur Pike."

Scope and Content
Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published March 20, 1961 with caption:" Plans to make Port Stanley a top tourist centre in Southwestern Ontario took another forward step when work began on the demolition of the wooden concessions that presently line the boardwalk. The plans call for the construction of new concrete block booths and it is hoped they will be ready for use in time for the summer trade. In the above photo Bruce Taylor is busy tearing down the first of the booths. He hopes to have the job completed in about one week's time."
