Item History
These outfits came from Cathy's mother and father, Camilla (Zavitz) Hamilton and Dom Hamilton. Camilla was originally born in Sparta but moved to Detroit where she trained as a nurse and worked at Harper Hospital. She met Dom Hamilton and later, they married and moved to Ohio where Dom grew up. Cathy Willson was born in Ohio and lived there until she met Ed Willson at a Quaker Meeting (ironically a distant cousin) and moved to Sparta to start a life with him. The articles of clothing were likely given to her by a member of Ed's family from Ohio.

Description
Framed chromatype photographic painting of a man. He appears in a white vignette and is pictured from the chest upward. He has short, coiffed, dark brown hair, and light blue eyes. He wears a suit with a black jacket, a white, high-collared shirt, and a white tie. The background is a deep blue-green. Seems to be a sketch coloured with watercolours. It is displayed in a wooden frame and overlaid with glass. The frame is light brown or golden-brown in colour and carved with decorations in relief. At the inner border of the frame is a repeating zig-zag pattern, and next to it is a repeating chain-like pattern. At the outer border of the frame is a repeating organic or botanical pattern, depicting flowers with tall stamens, and leaves. Donation form identifies man in frame as Edwin "Ted" Ernest Wolfe, 1871-1953. Chromatypes, photo-crayotypes, or crayon collotypes, were produced through the hand-colouring of photographs by the application of crayons or pigments over a photographic impression. To create a "crayon enlargement" such as this sketch, one would use a magic lantern to project the photograph onto the back of the drawing paper or canvas, on which the artist could sketch the projected image and add detail in graphite, charcoal, chalk, or watercolour as said artist saw fit.

Description
Framed chromatype photographic watercolour portrait of a man identified as Thomas MacIntyre Nairn. He is pictured from the chest upward, and faces the right in a three-quarter view. He has blue eyes, short, coiffed brown hair, and a bushy beard with a moustache. He wears a dark jacket with two rows of buttons. He appears in a white vignette, on a blue background. Displayed in a wooden frame and overlaid with glass. The inner border of the frame is coated in gold leaf and the wood of the frame is stained a dark brown. The back of the frame is coated with a thick brown paper, and several wires run across width of the frame, attached to a loop at either side. Either a small, blue, ovate sticker or piece of paper at the top of the frame on its back reads "O.B. GRAVES LIMITED. PICTURE FRAMES, ARTIST MATERIALS, WALLPAPERS. LONDON, ONTARIO." Thomas MacIntyre Nairn was born June 16, 1830 and died June 1, 1888 at the age of 58. In 1854 he married Delphine Vanpatter, the daughter of John Vanpatter. Thomas MacIntyre Nairn also had a successful political career, serving as the first Reeve of Aylmer from 1872-1877. He was also a member of Elgin County Council for 16 years and a Warden of the County for 6 years. In 1881 he became a co-founder of the Aylmer Canning Company. Chromatypes, photo-crayotypes, or crayon collotypes, were produced through the hand-colouring of photographs by the application of crayons or pigments over a photographic impression. To create a "crayon enlargement" such as this sketch, one would use a magic lantern to project the photograph onto the back of the drawing paper or canvas, on which the artist could sketch the projected image and add detail in graphite, charcoal, chalk, or watercolour as said artist saw fit.

Coyle. The Aylmer Condensed Milk Company In 1892 David Marshall partnered with George Allworth to build a condensed milk and cream evaporating plant – the first of its kind. Orders came in from all over the world and they began operating 24 hours a day. Marshall later bought the Condensed Milk Company from Allworth and included it under the Aylmer Canners. Unfortunately, no known photo exists of the first building the company operated out of. In 1907 a $60,000 brick building was built for the Aylmer Condensed Milk Company on the east side of John Street North. This building was used until the company’s closing. Carnation Milk in Aylmer On November 27, 1916 the Aylmer Condensed Milk Company was purchased by the Carnation Company. This marked the first Carnation plant in Canada! At this point the factory employed about 75 people. Employment at the factory reached its peak during the Second World War and employed roughly 150 people. The Later Years As of the 1980s the Aylmer plant of Carnation employed 48 people in the condensed milk division and 25 in the can division. Production at the Aylmer Carnation Company plant later stopped and the plant was closed on May 1st, 1987. The building sat empty and with no other interest in it, was later torn down in 1993.
