Scope and Content

Fonds consists of drawings executed by Edward Lukeman. These artworks depict scenes primarily in Toronto, with some additional sketches done at Port Hope, Hamilton, London and Leitchcroft in Ontario, and at Quebec City, Quebec. Also included in the fonds are a selection of posters and other paper advertising media designed by Edward Lukeman, often incorporating his own sketches or paintings in the design. There are also a series of black and white photographs taken by Edward and his wife, Marry Lukeman. These images show various scenes in Toronto, Hamilton and Port Hope. In addition, there are two copies of historic photographic prints showing old Port Hope; the original photographs were taken in 1878.

The fonds has been arranged into three series: the first series consists of Edward Lukeman's drawings and sketches; the second series consists of the posters; and the third series contains the photographs.
