Name of creator
Elizabeth Ruth Redelmeier is a resident of Port Hope, Ontario.
Collection was in the custody of Lord Russborough’s Annex before being purchased by Elizabeth Ruth Redelmeier and subsequently donated to Trent University Archives in 2019. Lord Russborough’s Annex collected the items from a variety of sources over a period of thirty years.
Scope and content
Collection consists of approximately fifty pieces of antiquarian maps, engraved views, portraits and scenes relating to the Red River Settlement of Manitoba and the North West Rebellion of 1885. The engravings reflect the emerging province of Manitoba as seen through the eyes of nineteenth century travellers and historians. Two bird’s eye views are of particular note, the first being a spread of views, buildings and an insert map of Winnipeg dated 1882, and the second being a lithographic bird’s eye view of Winnipeg, 1884, depicting the city in its early development, surrounded by vignettes of local prominent public and private buildings. Also included is a “British America” J. & F. Tallis map with the principle vignette being “Hudson City”, ca. 1849.
Immediate source of acquisition
Collection acquired from Elizabeth Ruth Redelmeier in 2019 via Darrell Leeson of Lord Russborough’s Annex.
Some items were received in frames with acidic mats. For preservation purposes, most were removed from their frames and placed in non-acidic sleeves.
