A group of military men, possibly members of the 90th squad, Winnipeg Rifles, lined up and holding rifles outside a white tent in preparation for departure to South Africa. The photographer is Henry Joseph Woodside, and on verso is written; "90th - squad under Major W _ Skirving at DRA Ottawa 1900". DRA might mean the Dominion Rifle Association which was headquartered in Ottawa at that time.
