Scope and Content
Accession consists of a portrait of Samuel Helpert of Sudbury, shortly after arriving from Minsk, Russia. The photograph was originally a glass plate negative that was blown-up and printed. Watercolours were then used to colourize the image and as a way of emphasising the contrast and other features that were lost during the printing process.
Samuel Helpert was the paternal great uncle of the donor. He was born in Minsk, Russia and immigrated to Canada where he lived in Sudbury and Toronto.
