J.C.M. Hayward, Operations of the Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company, 1912

This album is one of four in the AGO's collection that photographer J.C.M. Hayward produced for the Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company in 1912. The pulp and paper company, based in Grand Falls, transformed Newfoundland's economy. In the 48 views found in this album, Hayward photographed all aspects of the production of paper, from sorting cut logs to pressing pulp to packing and transporting the finished paper rolls. His evocative gelatin silver prints, luxuriously presented between leather-bound, gilt-stamped covers, beautifully celebrate the company's success.
