Coming Soon ~ Mary Spencer, Photographer
"Miss Spencer will be ready to open her studio on Monday, June 5th and will be pleased to have you call."
Inland Sentinel, June 2, 1899
Mary Spencer (1857 – 1938)
Between 1899 and 1909, she produced some of the most stunning photographs ever taken of Kamloops and the surrounding area. A proliﬁc photographer and artist, Mary Spencer remains relatively unknown for her lasting contribution in a pioneer field of women photographers. Her portraits reﬂect honest vulnerabilities and sometimes humorous snapshots of a community on the threshold of change as the formal assurances of the Victorian era gave way to a new world.
