Al Betts fonds

  • Fonds
  • [196-?] – [ca. 1982?]

Records consist of photographs created by Streetsville resident Al Betts during his time as a professional photographer. Betts worked professionally as a photographer from ca. 1965 to ca. 1983.

Included are wedding portraits, passport portraits, photographs of various industrial and commercial properties, confirmation (first communion) photographs, and photographs taken for the Streetsville Review newspaper. The geographic coverage of the material is not limited to Streetsville or Toronto Township; Betts travelled throughout Ontario while working for clients, and as a result photographs of other locales are present (including Burlington, Etobicoke, and Toronto). One of Betts’ major commercial clients was the Toronto-based foundry and engineering company John T. Hepburn Ltd. and they sent him to document their projects throughout Ontario.

Betts, Al

Port Credit to Vancouver

File consists of a 40 page privately published book, printed at The Charters Pub. Co. Ltd., Brampton. It details a trip made by G. W. Gordon, James Lightfoot, John Thomson, Reuben Lush, and Margaret Lush, beginning 30 August 1922 and finishing 3 October 1922.

The Growler

File consists of a satirical newspaper called "The Growler". The title was apparently printed weekly on Saturday afternoons.

While the item lists "Quirk, Gammon & Snap" as its editors, it was a project of the Brampton Times editor and his son, George and Luther "Lou" Tye.
