THOMPSON, S. J. (STEPHEN JOSEPH) - 1895 Photograph of Columbia Street in New Westminster, B.C. By S.J. Thompson

New Westminster, B.C. S. J. Thompson, 1895. Photograph. A circa 1895 gelatin silver photograph [7-1/4 x 9-1/4 inches wide] mounted onto heavy card [10-1/2 x 12-5/8 inches wide] titled in negative "Columbia St. New Westminster." and "S.J. Thompson, Photo. New Westminster, B.C." at foot of image. Shows an interesting view up Columbia Street looking east from just in front of the newly completed Masonic and Oddfellows block [built in 1892] at Lorne Street, capturing lots of action including an oncoming trolley car in the distance, a man riding a bicycle and four horse-drawn wagons at storefront curbs. Image and card with some soil and light wear and a single pinhole to card near bottom edge - not affecting image. S. J. Thompson is considered by many to have been one of the best photographers working at the time, with many institutions still holding his work today, including the National Gallery of Canada. Good .
