Scope and content

Series consists of graphic materials relating to BC brewing history: photographic prints, digital scans, beer labels (originals and copies), and other printed images. The series also includes Evans' correspondence relating to photo research and permissions clearance for his various projects, including the book project; textual records include correspondence, search results, low-resolution print-outs of images, order forms, invoices, schedules of fees, and conditions of use forms.

Photographs appear throughout most series in the fonds; this series brings together images that were stored loose or in separate binders or folders without any obvious connection to other materials; and it includes Evans' own low-resolution scans of analog originals.
