Boorne & May

Regular price $150.00 Sale

The firm Boorne and May opened in Calgary in 1886 with Boorne as photographer and his cousin May as darkroom technician. Their photographs deal mainly with railway construction, the development of towns and cities and mountain scenes. In 1889 May was appointed Clerk of the Supreme Court and the partnership was dissolved. As this photo states Boorne & May, Photo, Calgary, N.W.T. on rear, the reiver scene may date to the late 1880s when the men were still in partnership.
