Collection contains seventy-seven glass plate lantern slides created by Byron Ulric Hatfield in Nova Scotia during the early twentieth century. Hatfield took photographs of coastal landscapes, churches and other buildings, and people working and in social settings. He also photographed published illustrations of Acadian life, including several illustrations of scenes from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem "Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie." Hatfield developed his own photographs and created "magic lantern" slides to use in an illustrated lecture titled "The Land of Evangeline: The Land of Romance, Legend, and Picturesque Beauty." He gave lectures in various locations throughout the eastern United States.
