About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Family Outing 1924

Family Outing 1924

I love the fashions of the period (mid-1920's). Right to left: My grandmother Gertrude, my father Tom I'Anson Jr. and his sister Jenny. The beach would be in Victoria or Vancouver BC. View full size.

Kits Beach, 1957

I agree, it looks like Kitsilano Beach. The distant shore looks similar to the one in this picture of me at Kits Beach circa 1957.

Kits Beach

My guess is Kits beach in Vancouver (the north end just before it curves around to the east towards the present-day Maritime Museum). That would be the Westend in the background and the clouds are low enough that you can't see the north shore mountains.
