    I got this Thursday last week at a Family estate sale that posted in paper 70 years of stuff. This is the first thing I grabbed and started making a pile, after about 2 hours of rummaging through boxes and yard, my pile was pretty big all for $30.
    Anyways, I cannot find this photo online nor have I taken out of frame to see what signature is at bottom.
    Any ideas on this photo ?

    Thank You 002.JPG 004.JPG 013.JPG 015.JPG

    From Debora's link I see that it was called Queen's College before 1912.

    Very likely there isn't one, Billy. You appear to have a photograph of the Arts Department's graduating class of 1897. Probably only a small number of copies were produced; probably only a small number (if any others) survived.

    This format (with small images of a large group of people) is referred to as a "composite." Don't know whether that would make any difference in search terms for another copy.

    The nice thing about this one is that the people seem to be identified (originally handwritten signatures were done "in the negative" and not on the copy you have.)
