Name of creator
George William Silver, the son of George Kenneth Silver and Violet Louise Kaulback, was born at Mahone Bay in 1925. He married Joan Corkum in 1952. The couple had five children. Silver was an avid antique collector and an active volunteer. In 2014, he received a Remarkable Senior Award in recognition of his community service. He died at Mahone Bay in 2017.
Records were collected and donated by George Silver, who lived at 97 Pleasant in Mahone Bay, the previous residence of John Hunt (some items may have been found in the Hunt house). The fonds comprises Accession Nos. 2017.11.2-2017.11.8, 2017.11.12-2017.11.15 , 2017.11.17-2017.11.19, 2017.11.23 -2017.11.25. Archival records from this donation that were directly connected to the Hunt family were arranged in a separate fonds (MBMS-60: Hunt Family fonds). Some items from this donation were also added to the Mahone Bay Museum’s artifact collection.
Scope and content
The collection consists of postcards and matted photographs depicting Mahone Bay town views, buildings, and the Mahone Junction train station (including some train wrecks).
