Fonds C 231
ca. 5011 photographs
600 metres of motion picture film
The Walter Moorhouse fonds consists of photographs and motion picture film taken by Walter Moorhouse depicting Moorhouse’s family, his homes, and the community in which he lived.
Moorhouse also captured the activities and students at the schools where he was employed, as well as those of the Daily Vacation Bible School and the Y.M.C.A. where he volunteered. There is a significant number of landscape photographs taken during Moorhouse's travels throughout Ontario, Quebec, Western Canada, Germany, and England as well as still life photographs of animals, flowers, trees, and various inanimate objects. Moorhouse's images provide a wealth of visual documentation concerning clothing and dress, social and family relationships, recreation and toys, and the lifestyle of an affluent family during the early 20th century.
The fonds is arranged into eighteen series.
Walter Moorhouse (1883-1957) was an amateur photographer who lived in Islington, Ontario with his wife and four children.
