Historia biográfica

Anne Alice Girling, known as Annie, was born in Suffolk, England in 1880 and studied photography at Woolwich Polytechnic before coming to Canada with her parents and younger siblings in 1912. The Girlings family settled on the shores of Swan Lake in Saanich before moving to Thetis Lake and later to Finnerty Road where they converted an old school house to a family home. Annie Girling never married and continued to live with family members in the Finnerty Road house until her death in 1953.

Historia archivística

Anne Alice Girling’s photographic collection was salvaged in the 1960s from the family’s Finnerty Road house by Ron Vidal, a neighbour and employee of the University of Victoria's Physics shop, before the house was demolished. The collection was given to Lindsay Lambert, a theatre student at the university, in 1977. Mr. Lambert, a photographic historian, preserved the collection in its entirety for over 30 years. Lindsay Lambert donated Anne Alice Girling’s 1901 field camera, plate holders, printing frames and collection of negatives to Saanich Archives in 2008. Further accruals were donated by Lindsay Lambert and by descendants of the Girling family from 2009 to 2013.
