The original photograph of which this is a copy was taken during "Peace Day" celebrations in St. Thomas on July 19, 1919, welcoming home the 91st Battalion and other veterans of the First World War. A different photograph of this float, by Scott Studio, was published in the St. Thomas Times-Journal, July 21, 1919, p. 1, with caption: "The spirit of peace surmounting the globe was splendidly portrayed in the float arranged by St. Thomas Chapter I.O.D.E., which was given the place of honour in the peace pageant. Warren Andrews of the Anderson Company Limited designed this delightful creation and supervised the decorating. The horses were loaned by W.T. Futcher of Talbotville, who also donated his services as driver. The wagon was donated by Thomas McKeown of this city while barrister W.K. Cameron very kindly permitted the ladies to use his rink for rehearsal purposes. Mrs. Bowers was convenor of the float. The little girls who figured in the unit were Jean Andrews, daughter of mr. and Mrs. Warren Andrews, spirit; Grace McIlroy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin McIlroy; Grace Wright, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.N. Wright; Jean Evans, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Evans; Charlotte, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. Chamberlain."

History / Biographical
The Rodney Branch 525, Royal Canadian Legion, received its' charter in October 1951.
Custodial History
Prior to their donation to the Elgin County Archives in March, 2010, the photographs composing the fonds were in the possession of Rodney Branch 525, Royal Canadian Legion. Items C2 Sh5 B4 1 to C2 Sh5 B4 7 and C2 Sh5 B4 9 to C2 Sh5 B4 13 had previously been in the Village of Rodney Archives and were turned over to the Branch for safe keeping. Items C2 Sh5 B4 8 and C2 Sh5 B4 14 to C2 Sh5 B4 35 were previously framed and displayed in the Clachan Hall. These photographs were deteriorating, so in 1989 they were removed from their frames and turned over to the Rodney Legion.
In 2008, the Branch loaned the photographs to the Archives for inclusion in it's First World War digitization project. The photographs were scanned and retouched digitally to remedy, in the digital version, some of the damage found on the originals. Where the damage involved facial features, often nothing was done. We felt it was better to leave them as they were, rather than risk altering the subject’s appearance. The photographs were returned to the Branch in March, 2009.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists principally of black and white portrait photographs of First World War soldiers, collected and maintained by Rodney Branch 525, Royal Canadian Legion. Most but not all portrait subjects had a personal or familial connection to the Village of Rodney, the Township of Aldborough and/or the West Elgin region. Fonds also includes two black and white photographs showing members of the 91st Overseas Battalion, C.E.F., assembling and marching in Rodney, Ontario, February 25, 1916. Fonds also includes a typescript note, 1989, on Branch letterhead, concerning the photographs previously framed and displayed at the Clachan Hall.
