            PR3557 · Fonds · 1908-2008, predominant 1908, 1980-2008

            The fonds consists of three record-types: records created by Frame 30 in the course of the production of The Greatest Auto Race on Earth, original material collected by Frame 30 to be used for research and/or on-screen appearances in The Greatest Auto Race on Earth, and records created by Frame 30 Productions for other projects.

            The records created during the course of production for The Greatest Auto Race on Earth are arranged in binders by topic and is essentially a compendium of information about race participants and details culled from various resources. The binders also contain correspondence, scripts, transcripts of interviews, and production notes.

            The research material consists of contemporaneous newspapers and advertisements that covered or referenced the 1908 race. The newspapers include publications from London, Rochester, Des Moines, and Paris. There are also monographs, bound volumes, and pamphlets about the 1908 race and related topics.

            The fonds also consists of photographs that document the 1908 race from its start in New York to its finish in Paris, with the entire westward-route across the United States, Asia, Russia, and Europe also shown.

            The remainder of the fonds consists of records created by Frame 30 Productions during the course of its business. The textual records consist mostly of job files for specific projects undertaken by Frame 30. The job files include contracts, scripts, correspondence, shooting schedules, and storyboards. The job files directly correspond to the selected audiovisual records. There are also some correspondence files and files related to membership in the Alberta Motion Picture Industry Association.

            The audiovisual records are masters, viewing copies, and/or preservation copies of projects completed by Frame 30. These include commercials for a wide variety of Albertan and western Canadian companies and corporate films, both those intended for internal use (such as training films) and external use (such as promotional films).

            This amateur film features the arrival in Victoria, BC of a team in the 1922 “Pathfinder Trek: Edmonton to Victoria via Jasper Highway.” The trek was instigated at the behest of the Edmonton Automobile and Good Roads Association, which was hoping to create a northern route to the BC coast via the Yellowhead Pass. The Association offered a gold medal for the team who could first drive a car from Edmonton to Victoria via the Jasper route. Two teams entered the race, the first consisting of Charles Neimeyer and Frank Silverthorne, employees of Lines Motors of Edmonton, who drove an Ford Overland Four, and the second consisting of George F. Gordon and J.E. Sims, who drove a Ford Model T pickup. The Overland team left Edmonton on 17 June 1922 and the Model T team left Edmonton on 22 June 1922. Both teams arrived in Victoria on 4 July 1922 but the Model T team benefitted from the rudimentary road construction that the Overland team had previously improvised on its way and arrived in Victoria ahead of its opponents.

            The film, which is dated as 1939 and must be a copy of original footage from 1922, depicts the Overland team in Victoria along with unrelated footage of several sporting activities such as diving and golf.
