John Irvine was an enthusiastic amateur photographer, active in the period ca.1895 to ca.1905. His views of Halifax and several nearby communities (Fall River, Purcell Cove, Waverley), plus the area around Annapolis Royal (Bear River, Clementsport, Granville Ferry, Smiths Cove) include buildings, street-scapes, picnics and outdoor activities, railways, farm scenes and informal portraits.

The following selected digitized archival photographs have been chosen as representative of the J.A. Irvine fonds; 101 images are available online.
