[Collection of Five Original Large Photos of Stanley Park, All Titled and Signed in Negative].
Ca. 1900s. Five gelatin silver prints ca. 24,5x19,5 cm (9 ¾ x 7 ¾ in). All numbered, titled and signed "Photo Rosetti" in negative. Photos with minor holes on the margins, several with minor corner wear. Overall a very good collection. Interesting collection of large original photos of Stanley Park taken by Vancouver based Rosetti Studio. The images include a view of the "Lighthouse at First Narrows from E. Of Prospect Point," and four "forest" scenes depicting the park's interior, with romantic titles: "Light spangled cloisters of the high-arched woods," "Lights Flecked and Shafted," "Guardians of the pass, westward to Second beach," and "The Shimmering lights of Summery woods." Rosetti Photographic Studios was a Vancouver enterprise active in ca. 1909-1915. It was "owned and operated by Lionel Haweis and J.J. McCarthy (1910), then by Haweis and a co-proprietor named Ranier (1912-1915). One A.C. Williams is also listed as a proprietor in 1913" ("Camera Workers..." online, vol. 2).
