St. Peter's Cathedral Archives houses and makes available the Cathedral official archives, along with archival materials related to the church community in Charlottetown and across Prince Edward Island.
The photographs were contained in an envelope stamped on the front with the following: "If not called for in five days return to S. N. Kays 87 Pownal St. Charlottetown, P.E.I." Additional writing on the envelope also provides descriptive information about the contents, as follows: "Photo films of St. Peter's Cathedral. 1. Chapel Altar 2. Church Interior 3. Church Exterior 4. High Altar 5. Chapel Interior 6. Church and Chapel 7. Old Exterior. To be kept."
The postcard is of the nave and chancel; it matches negative No. 2. In envelope No. 3 there is one negative, in No. 4 there are two negatives. No. 5 was catalogued separately as Photo 440. In No. 6 there is one negative, in No. 7 there are two negatives.
The photograph shows the interior of the church, specifically the nave and chancel. The postcard on the reverse states "Private Postcard". The envelope with the negative has "No. 2" written on its front.
The photograph shows a view of the church and chapel from across the street in front of the government building. The negative was originally in envelope No. 7. The view is quite similar to Photo 0325, however this image includes a clear view of the building on Fitzroy Street.
The photographs show the high altar. There are minor differences between the images but they are essentially the same. Note that candles and statues are shown. The statues are white, which predates the images to before painting was done in the early 1970's. The envelope holding the negatives has "No. 4" written on the front.
