The collection consists of b&w photographs of fire trucks. There are trucks from the Burlington, Grimbsy, Kamsack, Kelowna, Kentville, Niagara, Niagara Falls, Pickering, Point Claire, Revelstoke, and the Canadian National Parks Fire Departments. Many of the trucks are identified as Bickle trucks. Founded in Winnipeg in 1906, the company had been moved to Woodstock, Ont. becoming Bickle Fire Engines Ltd. in 1922. Four of the photographs are taken by Charles W. Hayrall of Woodstock, Ont. One of the photographs was taken by W.J. Oliver. Most of the photographs are stationary portraits of trucks. Only three of the photographs show any action: two men are atop the Canadian National Parks truck operating the fire hose at a lake; one photograph is of a truck moving down a street; one photograph is of men climbing a fire truck ladder.

  • MS124
  • Item
  • 1683 or later

Translated title: Collected from the Patent Rolls of King Richard II in the Tower of London. Late 17th century manuscript. The manuscript contains information copied out of the Chancery Patent Rolls which were recorded during the reign of Richard II (1377-1399). The entries are summaries, written in Latin, of those contained in the Rolls and are a selective collection of the material. The county associated with each entry has been noted in the margin throughout and occasionally references “m.#” possibly to the Membrane it was from or as a reference to a different record.

Physical description: Folio. Binding is from the 18th century, full-leather, calf, which has been blind tooled with a Cambridge panel. The spine was later re-backed in sheep skin in the 19th century, likely February 1860, when the manuscript was sent for repairs by Bellamy Burton (repair slip has been sewn in between pp.8-9).

The manuscript is written on laid paper with a couple of different watermarks, see pp. 57 and 211.

Included with the manuscript is pp.181-182 of The Graphic, from 3 August 1912.
