Description
Framed intaglio print of the piece "In Meadows Cool" by artist William Frederick Hulk. The original piece was painted in colourful oils, and was reproduced here in black and white in the photogravure style of engraving. We see a flooded meadow of tall grass and flowers, with the horizon at about the center of the image. Cows of varying patterns lay or stand in the meadow, some drinking from large puddles. We see a copse of trees in the center of the image, and another at the far left side. The artist's signature, W.F. Hulk, is in the lower left corner. The image has a wide, white or cream-coloured border, which bears the piece's title, and the text "W.F. Hulk pinxt [from Latin pinxit, he painted], No.1463. Copyright Published by S. Hildesheimer & Co. Ltd., London & Manchester." Displayed in a wooden frame and overlaid with glass. The inner border of the frame is coated in gold leaf. The wood of the frame is stained a dark brown. Some paper backing remains along the wood of the frame. The contents of the frame are held in place by three thin pieces of wood and square nails. Wire hangs across the back of the frame.

History / Biographical
Garrett Oakes was born in New Brunswick on September 10, 1791, and moved with his family to the Long Point Settlement on the north shore of Lake Erie between 1803 and 1805. By 1811, Oakes had petitioned for and been granted land on the Talbot Road in Yarmouth Township, where he was one of the earliest settlers. In the course of his long life, Garrett Oakes was an inventor, coffin maker, mechanical engineer, manufacturer of spinning wheels, school teacher, musician, ventriloquist, sailor, woodsman, and Justice of the Peace. Between 1873 and 1879 he published his memoirs in the form of a series of thirty one articles published in the Canadian Home Journal and the St. Thomas Journal. These reminiscences form an oral history of the early days in the Talbot Settlement and are considered unique in that they provide a true and accurate description of the time period and of the difficulties of pioneer life. With his first wife Maria Long, whom he married in March 1812, Oakes had eleven children, including sons Robert Bruce (1832-1891) and William Wallace. Maria Long Oakes died on November 21, 1848, and the next year Oakes married Julia Hitchcock. Garrett Oakes died April 6, 1881 and was buried in the New Sarum Baptist Cemetery.
Custodial History

The records formed part of the collection of the Elgin County Pioneer Museum/ Elgin County Museum under file no. 80-3481. Transferred to Elgin County Archives, May, 2007.
