The Still Photo Collection

CBC archive image

The Still Photo Collection website provides access to a catalogue of archived CBC Radio and Television production photography from the 1930s to the present. The catalogue is continually being updated with new images as they are digitized; current content represents only a small portion of the total collection.

Many of the photographs were taken during dress rehearsals of CBC drama and variety shows produced in Toronto, or during broadcasting of current affairs programs. As well as showcasing the actors and personalities, these photos illustrate the sets and costumes of those particular productions. The collection also includes photographs of radio programs and personalities, publicity photos and behind-the-scenes shots illustrating crew and equipment - studio lighting, cameras, etc.

CBC content from Halifax, Newfoundland and Saskatchewan is represented in the collection as well, with over 2000 images digitized and catalogued.
