Description
Framed marriage certificate. At the top of the document are images of the bride (Mary Ellen Summers), groom (Edward McIntosh), and priest (John Saunders). The groom has short hair and a long, bushy moustache. He wears a dark-coloured suit and tie with a light-coloured shirt. The bride has her hair up, pulled away from her face, and wears a dark-coloured dress with a high neck and puffy shoulders. The priest has short, combed-over hair, and a long, bushy beard. He wears a dark-coloured jacket with a white shirt. The border around each image contains text. The groom's border reads "IT IS NOT GOOD THAT THE MAN SHOULD BE ALONE, GEN 2." The bride's border reads "GEN 2, I WILL MAKE HIM AN HELP MEET FOR HIM [sic.]." The priest's border reads "MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE IN ALL. HEB 13." The three photographs are surrounded by a wreath of flowers and leaves. An open book appears at the top of the wreath, with a sash which reads "HOLY BIBLE." Between the bride and groom is a sash which reads "What Therefore GOD hath joined Together, let not MAN put asunder." At the center of the wreath are two hands clasped together, with another hand on top of them. Below these images is the text of the certificate, including the identities of the bride and groom and the signatures of witnesses. The certificate is displayed in a wood and plaster frame and overlaid with glass. The frame is beige, brown, and golden in colour, and has decorations carved in relief. These decorations are ornate, repetitive organic or botanical patterns. The frame's backing consists of two thin pieces of wood. Full text: "This is to Certify, That Edward McIntosh of the village of Springfield, Elgin County, Ontario and Mary Ellen Summers of the township of Malahide, County of Elgin, Ont, WERE UNITED IN HOLY MATRIMONY According to the Ordinance of God and the Laws of the Province of Ontario at Summers' Corners on the 25th day of February in the year of Our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eighty.

Description
Framed lithographic print of a map of Aylmer, titled "BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF AYLMER, ONTARIO, 1881." We view Aylmer in black and white, facing south, from Albert St. in the east to St. Andrew St. in the west. The town stretches from the bottom of the image to the horizon near the top of the image. Catfish Creek runs upward into the town, and outward to the right side of the image. The roofs of various Aylmer buildings are labelled, 1 to 22, and their identities are listed below the map. Also below the map is a series of images of Aylmer businesses and churches, including the Methodist Episcopal Church (as of entry in 2020, the Trinity Anglican Church), the Aylmer Baptist Church, the "Offices & Residences of Drs. Clark Brothers," the Christian Methodist Church (as of entry in 2020, St. Paul's United Church), and the "Walker Block, G.I. & E. Walker" (currently Talbot St., west of John St.). Text at the bottom of the page reads "PUB BY FOWLER & RHINES. BECK & PAULI, LITH., MILWAUKEE, WIS." The map has a cream or beige-coloured matting. Displayed in a wooden frame and overlaid with glass. The wood of the frame is painted a mid-toned red-brown, and its surface is carved into three levels of thickness, the thickest at the inner edge and the thinnest at the outer edge. The contents of the frame are held in place by a white piece of cardboard or cardstock, and brass-coloured metal strips. A wire extends across the back of the frame, connected to a loop at each side. Full text: "1. Baptist Church, 2. Canada Methodist Church, 3. Methodist Episcopal Church, 4. English Church, 5. Town Hall, 6. High School, 7. Public School, 8. G.W.R. Station, 9. Brown House, H.J.

Description
Stereoscope Card of "Salisbury Cathedral northwest front England, first great Church of the early English Style." Series 1900 by Underwood & Underwood. This card would have been viewed through a stereoscope. A stereoscope viewed a card featuring two images separated to the left and right eye of the viewer. These two-dimensional images were then combined by the brain of the viewer to give the perception of three-dimensional depth. Hundreds of thousands of stereoscopic images were sold and stereoscopic images could be found in almost every middle-class Victorian drawing room or parlour. Special cameras were developed to make the images and popular subjects including portraits, scenery, comedic scenes, and images of far off designations.

Item History
The Baptist congregation was established in Aylmer in 1816. In 1843 a frame chapel was constructed on the east side of John Street South. In 1871 a brick building was constructed on the same site, as seen in this image. On July 12, 1950 a large fire gutted the church, leaving only the walls and tower remaining. On November 11, 1951 the Aylmer Baptist Church dedicated their new church building. In 1963 the chapel was constructed.
