Notes
This is image is a January 2005 reprint of the original matted photograph, which is in a private collection. The photograph appeared in the 16 March 1916 edition of the Toronto Star. The image is believed to have been taken by Ernest Denton on 16 February 1916. Ernest Denton was a photographer in Berlin/Kitchener from approximately 1912 to 1955. He operated photography studios at various locations in the city. It is believed that many of these soldiers had participated in the previous night's riot in Berlin, during which the Concordia Club was ransacked by soldiers and civilians, the bronze bust of Kaiser Whilhelm I stolen, and other vandalism occurred. The next day, as depicted in this image, the soldiers visited the Peace Memorial in Victoria Park and pried off the bronze medallions of Bismark and Von Moltke. On 1 March 1916, the Berlin Park Board ordered the Peace Memorial destroyed so that it would no longer be a target of vandalism. The image may have been retouched and it is not known if the statement on the banner is original or if it has been altered in any way.

Canadian Expeditionary Force - 118th (North Waterloo) Battalion
Notes
The 118th North Waterloo Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force (C.E.F.), were trained for service overseas during World War I. Although no individuals have been identified, it is likely that Roy Hilts, the donor's father, is included in the picture. The Berlin Portrait Room was owned and operated by Ernest Denton. He was a photographer in Berlin/Kitchener from approximately 1912 to 1955. He operated photography studios at various locations in the city. The photograph is mounted on a mat. The mat has worn edges, with a small piece missing from the bottom. There are glue and paper remnants across the bottom of the mat, suggesting that a label may have been removed at some point in time. The image has many fine surface scratches, worn edges and a missing bottom right corner.

Notes
According to a 9 February 2008 Kitchener Waterloo Record article, the 17 May 1974 flood in Galt, Ontario caused over 6.7 million dollars worth of damage and resulted in a provincial inquiry that found no fault with the Grand River Conservation Authority's actions during the flooding. However, many recommendations were put forth, including upgraded flood warning systems, improved flood forecasting capabilities, stricter controls over construction nearby waterways, and better water management policies. This photograph appears on page 37 of the 1974 Waterloo Historical Society annual volume. The image is credited as belonging to the Grand River Conservation Authority collection.
