This c.1916 photograph is from the City of Charlottetown’s Dorothy Forsythe Collection and will be featured in the exhibit Picturing A City: We Remember Them, that runs from November 10 to December 11. Pictured in this studio photo are six members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force posing with a member of the French elite mountain infantry, the Chasseurs Alpins or Mountain Hunters (centre front). The photo includes East Royalty resident, F I Andrew, OBE, who entered the war at 17 years old in 1915 and served in some of the bloodiest battles of the First World War (front, left).The City of Charlottetown has partnered with the Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum to create a historic exhibit entitled Picturing A City: We Remember Them, depicting the City of Charlottetown and its citizens during the war.

November 11, 2018 marked 100 years since the armistice that caused fighting to cease in the First World War. City Staff have opened up their archival collections and chosen fascinating photos of veterans and the City during the war. In addition, the Charlottetown Fire Department has provided artifacts pertaining to its members that served in the Corps of Canadian Firefighters in the Second World War. The Prince Edward Island Regiment Museum has once again generously provided selections from its collection of images and artifacts from the Second World War. Among the wide variety of items on display are photos of Charlottetown’s veterans, training areas in the City, a Second World War North Nova Scotia Highlanders uniform, cards sent home to loved ones from the front, and even a battlefield telephone.

This is the latest installment of the Picturing a City historic photo exhibit series that focuses on an aspect of Charlottetown’s history or traditions and displays materials from its Archives. All are welcome to come and view the display in the storefront windows at the Planning and Heritage Department at 233 Queen Street to remember those that have sacrificed so much for our country. The exhibit runs until December 11.

The Heritage staff wish to thank all of the individuals who donated images and artifacts to make the department’s exhibits possible. These donations allow the history of the city to be shared with the public and promotes Charlottetown’s heritage.

For more information on donating photos or allowing the City’s Heritage staff to scan images to be used in a future display, please contact the Planning and Heritage Department at 902-629-4051 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
