title H. B. Sterling's Charlottetown
creator Hornby, Jim
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description One of the largest groups of 19th century photographs in our Public Archives is the Sterling Collection, donated by Mr. and Mrs. Jack Wyers of Burlington, Ontario, and primarily the work of photographer Henry Burton Sterling. A few of the photos date to 1862, others to c. 1885; but most dated prints are from 1893-95 and are stamped with the initials H.B.S. The dated ones in this selection (here published for the first time) are 1893-95 except the last and possibly one other. Charlottetown scenes comprise the majority of prints in the Sterling Collection, with others taken in Summerside, Halifax, Montreal, and Boston. This sampling of Sterling's Charlottetown photos is an introduction to the profusion of images he has left of the Island capital.
