Biographical history

The Arnold family lived in Kitchener, Ontario in the 1930s. They had an interest in travel as well as aviation.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of photographs taken by family members as well as postcards. There are two postcards sent to Mr. and Mrs. L. Arnold by their son or daughter, from Montreal and Maine in 1931, which contain messages. Members of the Arnold family travelled to the National Air races in Cleveland, Ohio in 1932. They also took photographs of Wiley Hardeman Post (1898-1935; the first pilot to fly solo around the world) who visited Kitchener, Ont. with his plane, the “Winnie Mae”. Their vacations took them to Quebec, the Maritimes, and Northern Ontario where they visited the Hollinger Mine, as well as the eastern seaboard and the midwest in the United States. Family members also documented a train derailment in Breslau in 1936 as well as an ice storm in 1930. The photographs have been removed from their original albums pages – there was no cover.
