Rosetti Studios, Staney Park Collection

Caught a great link today to some photos of Stanley Park from ~100 years ago. The shots are excellent black and white images that really showcase the trees in the area. (His water shots are nice, but not as good as the forest pictures.) I especially like the lighting that he used, as the sunlight came down through the trees.

Part of the University of British Columbia Archives’ Haweis Family fonds, this small collection of sixty glass plate negatives created by Rosetti Photographic Studios document Vancouver’s Stanley Park in 1912. Rosetti Studios appears to have operated in Vancouver between 1910 and 1915 under the direction of long-time UBC Library employee Lionel Haweis.
