|Born: Mary Olive Edis |
Other: Mary Olive Edis Galsworthy
|Dates: ||1876 - 1955|
|Active: ||UK / France / Canada|
English studio photographer and autochromist. In March 1919 she was commissioned by the National (later Imperial) War Museum to photograph the work of British women in France & Flanders. In 1920 she was asked to undertake a commission to make advertising photographs for the Canadian Pacific Railway and did the work during July to November. The plates were exhibited at the 1921 Toronto Fair, and at the Canadian Pacific Offices in London in 1922, but apart from a few 'seconds' offered here there is no trace of the main body of work. These are probably the earliest known colour images of Western Canada.
