Sports, Pastimes and Pursuits of Canada: Cariboo Hunting

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3062A
Scope and Contents

A slip-case containing prints taken in Montreal, mounted on card with brief letterpress captions. Most prints measure approximately 120 x 90 mm. These pictures, which to the modern eye have a rather comical air of strained posing, were evidently much sought after at the time as being marvellously realistic (this particular collection is one of a series).
