Custodial history

Precise custodial information for most items in this collection is unknown. In 2013, the archivist of the Guelph Public Library began assembling the various items acquired by the library over the years into a collection. Newer donations of individual objects received by the archives are accessioned into this collection.

Scope and content

Collection consists of ceramic ornaments, souvenir tea cups, and plates related to the history of Guelph. A number of the objects contain the image of the Guelph (Carnegie) Public Library or of the City of Guelph’s original coat of arms with the latin inscription "Fides, Professio, Fidelitas". Other plates include the city’s current coat of arms recreated in the late 1970s. Included in this collection is a dollar coin created for Guelph's sesquicentennial in 1977.
