Name of creator
Lt. Col. A.B. Allard served as Chief Superintendent of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in the Yukon Territory, 1926-1927, and 1931-1934. During these stints of service he, his wife and daughter, Dorothy lived in the commanding officer's residence in Dawson City. Lt. Col. Allard died in 1967.
Lt. Col. Allard's daughter, Dorothy, donated this photograph album to the Public Archives of Canada, which in turn loaned it permanently to Yukon Archives in 1975.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of a photograph album put together by the Allard family. The photographs show the family and their friends, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) compound, residences, officers, panoramic views of Dawson City, picnics at Rock Creek, Bear Creek Mining Camp, the Canadian No. 4 Dredge, Dayo Hill Mine, the 1925 Dawson City flood, and Ross River. The last twenty photographs are of prominent Canadians, including Mr. Justice Charles Macaulay of the Yukon Territory, Prime Minister R.B. Bennett and Winnipeg Mayor R. Webb, and Prince Edward and Prince George at the Winnipeg train station in 1929.
The album is bound.
