Georgia H. Cunningham
1989-433 · Fonds · 1900-1969

Consists of negatives taken by Georgia H. Cunningham for clients who patronized her commercial studio. The geographic area represented is almost exclusively Bridgetown and surrounding area. Cunningham's work is primarily portraiture although from 1942 onwards there are a number of photographs of school classes and societies as well as the Bridgetown Salvation Army Citadel. Approximately five percent of the photographs include views of shopfronts, buildings, churches, streets, scenery and special events such as the visit of the Bishop of Nova Scotia to St. James Anglican Church in 1946. Also includes a few glass plate negatives which may have been taken by previous commercial studio owners Joseph Rice or Edith Crosskill, as well as negatives and prints left with her by clients for processing or given to her by others. Also contains a photograph and three letters concerning Dr. Otto Srasser (1898-1974) a Nazi exile who lived in Paradise, Nova Scotia for fifteen years.
