Charles Macnamara - A Retrospective

Creator(s): Arnprior & McNab/Braeside Archives

Charles Macnamara lived in Arnprior from 1881 to 1944, and worked as secretary-treasurer for the McLachlin Bros. Lumber Company for 46 years. This Community Memories exhibit features numerous photographs of his family, friends and the landscape around Arnprior between 1894 and 1900. From 1908 to 1917, Charles Macnamara was involved with the pictorial movement in photography. Several of his award-winning prints from that time are included in this retrospective of his life and photography.

The Arnprior McNab/Braeside Archives is grateful for the support it received from donors Alison Stein, Judith Hunter and James Cunningham in the creation of this virtual exhibit. Thanks also go to David Lewis Stein and Jean Finnie for their encouragement and participation throughout this year-long project.
