  • 1915-1916

The fonds contains 51 photographs taken by or taken of Blossom Davison and her friends at Mount Saint Vincent Academy and possibly other locations in the Halifax region. At least one picture was taken in Charlottetown at the legislative buildings.

The photographs depict the MSVA campus during winter. Students can be seen doing various activities and sports including ice hockey, tennis, baseball and a music recital. Some are team photos, while other are action shots.

There is also a photograph of the girls with various people, including a soldier and young men. We can only assume that these were friends or family of Blossom.

There are also a number of pictures taken off campus, and these include pictures taken at the beach, in front of various buildings around town, on a boat, in cars, on a hike in the forest and cross-country skiing.

Some of the photographs are annotated on the back with names and captions, however the majority of people in the photographs are unidentified.

There are also 2 printed event programmes from Mount Saint Vincent Academy that were donated by Rachel. The programmes cover Closing Exercises of intermediate and junior pupils of Academy Mount Saint Vincent (19 June 1917) and the pageant commemorating the 50th anniversary of the foundation of Mount Saint Vincent Academy in 1924. Rachel’s younger sister Kathleen acted in the pageant.
