These are from the Toronto Globe and Mail collection, which consists of ca. 140,000 negatives created by and/or under the direction of the Globe and Mail's first staff photographer, John H. Boyd, between December 1922 and November 1953. The range of the material is tremendous, providing a rich visual record of Toronto, especially in the 1930s and 1940s. These photos were taken at the Canadian National Exhibition in the 1920s.

The Daniel, Al Fred, Photograph Collection consists of 586 photographs from three studios managed by the Albert Frederick Daniel family in Jackson, Mississippi, as well as copy prints of other photographers' work. Most of the photographs were taken in Jackson, although there are groups of images of the tung oil industry in south Mississippi and Boy Scouts at campgrounds around the state. Other subjects include businesses, churches (interior and exterior), colleges, floods, hospitals, politicians, public buildings, schools, and street scenes. Of special interest are panoramic photographs of early floods in downtown Jackson, images of the Mississippi Farmers Market and the Farish Street business district, and multiple images of both the Old Capitol and the Mississippi State Capitol buildings.
