Suffering all his life from tuberculosis, he would travel each summer to a far area of Newfoundland to ease the effects of the disease. He documented these trips with hundreds of exquisite glass-plate negatives, many of which survive today. These images would form the basis of Through Newfoundland with the Camera, an album of [100+] photographs. [Originally] Published posthumously in 1905, it is considered a masterpiece. The book was intended by Holloway to interest tourists in the grandeur of the country and businessmen in its potential for investment. It proved so popular that a second edition, revamped by his family, was brought out in 1910.” ---the copy offered here is the 2nd edition, revised, ---some of the images include: British warships in The Narrows; views from Signal Hill; Squidding near Burin; Port-au-Port; Cabot Tower; St John’s Railway Station; the Dry Dock; the new Court House; Quidi-Vidi; Kilbride Falls; Holyrood, Concepcion Bay; Toad’s Cove; The Arched Rock, Catalina, Trinity Bay; Nippers Harbour; Indian Burying Place near Exploits; Moreton’s Harbour; SS Virginia; Notre Dame Bay; Man Point at leading Tickle; Herring Neck; cruising in Dildo Run; Twillingate; Cape Bonavista; panorama of Burin Harbor; Balaena whaling station; panorama of Collin’s Cove and Ship Cove, Burin; camping scenes; Gypsum Cliffs at Fischel’s Brook with railway bridge and handcar; Humber River area; poling up The Humber; Bonne Bay; railway near Breakfast Head; Placentia, village and railway view; Hopedale, Moravian Missionary Station in labrador; Indian Harbour, Lab.; Eskimo Dogs at Cartwright, Sandwich bay, Lab.; fishing creel, rod, and Salmon caught; various Lab. harbors; Bonne Esperance, Lab.; Fishing scenes; Head of Hump-Backed Whale, Snooks Arm; carcase (sic) of Hump-Backed Whale, Snooks Arm; hauling a cod trap; fish drying at Little Bay island; and lots more, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
