    Burgess Pass, Yoho National Park, c:1912-1914 

    Catalog #: burgess-pass-001

    Title: Top of Burgess Pass Emerald Lake below. Yoho National Park (est. 1886), British Columbia, Canada.

    Photographer:  Attributed to W.J. Oliver, Calgary Alberta.

    Date: [c:1912-1914]

    Description: Vintage photograph (silver print) in original wood frame and glass. Image size approx 30 inches wide x 36 inches tall

    The man in the photo is most likely cowboy Bill Jones, a frequent subject of the photographer. Other images by Oliver, in the years 1912-1914, show Jones with the same horse, hat and chaps.

    Some archivists have suggested the man is Yoho Warden Jack Giddie, but Giddie was a much shorter man.

    Remarks: This image appeared in the Canadian Geographical Journal, Volume 1, Number 3, page 210, July, 1930. Article entitled: Memories Of The Mountains, by Henrietta Wilson.

    Signed: Original brass identification plaque on frame. Photo might be signed on the reverse, but I have never risked unframing it to check.

    Image size: 30"Wide x 36" Tall

    Vintage: Yes

    Condition: Fine

    Framed: Original hardwood frame, glass and brass title plaque.

    Additional Research and Provenance. This image once hung in Montreal's Windsor Station (Canadian Pacific Railway).
