This web site contains images of original material collected by me over the last 25+ years. It is intended for your casual viewing enjoyment, but, also as a reference for researchers, students and other professional interests. For books or research, higher res scans can be obtained. While currently residing in my home, this collection will eventually be donated and on public display in downtown Toronto.
See How to View this Collection for more details.
I am very impressed with Rob Brooks' dedication to promoting Mary Pickford's legacy. Not only has he spent years building this incredible collection, but he has also made these rare elements available to the public. I hope that Rob's collection will continue to travel, as it exposes new audiences to Mary Pickford and showcases her tremendous impact on the film industry.
I met Rob last week in Toronto, and his Pickford collection is jaw-droppingly deep and comprehensive, ranging from posters and postcards to clothing, and material from as far back as the Gladys Smith days.
