Indian Rancherie and mouth of Fraser Canyon, 1885

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3069A/1

Scope and Contents

243 x 192 mm. A view looking towards the Fraser River and Canyon with mountains in the distance. In the foreground beside the river is an Indian Reservation of wooden cabins, with a section of line visible at the left of the picture. The word 'rancherie', indicating a settlement of Indians, probably comes from the communal plank-house of the Pacific Coast Indians: 'We pulled the goods ... into a near-by large Indian house, called in those days a rancheree ...' (Moberly, c.1906, p. 3).
