- Curator's comments
Mr Wheeler was a Hudson's Bay Company employee during the 1920s and 1930s in James Bay. He collected these things then, with two rolls of 9 mm film. This will be transferred to video, and copied to prevent further deterioration, and stored with Departmental photo archive. (JCK,10.5.1993)
Inside the bag is a small paper card with a knotted green silk ribbon in the top right corner. The card has the handwritten message "To Mum, with love from Tom" on one side and the printed name "Roy T. Wheeler" on the other. It suggests that this object may once have been a gift from Mr. Wheeler to his mother.
