A black and white large format negative of the children's section in the Whitby Carnegie Library.
Notes:
The library was created through a Carnegie grant and was known as a Carnegie Library. Construction for the Carnegie Library began in early 1913 and the building was opened in 1914 at the north east corner of Dundas and Byron Streets. The building housed approximately 5,000 books and served as the town's library from 1914 to 1973.

Today the Carnegie Library building is used as a lawyer's office at 132 Dundas Street West, Whitby, Ontario. The Whitby Public Library is now located at 405 Dundas Street West, Whitby, Ontario.

Marjorie Georgina Ruddy (1908-1980) was a prominent Whitby photographer and the only commercial photographer in Whitby during the 1930s and 1940s. Marjorie was the official photographer for the Whitby Police Department starting in the 1930s and as a result took many photographs of car accidents, fingerprints and crime scenes. (Station Gallery.
