Scope and content
The album contains photographs of Cressman's time as a conscientious objector in Alternative Service in British Columbia from 1942-1943. Although primarily based at the Goldstream (Langford) camp, Cressman and the other COs sometimes worked in the local community or in other CO camps on Vancouver Island. Most of the men in the photographs are fellow COs from Ontario, along with a few staff of the British Columbia Forestry Service.
