Photographs were likely either taken or collected by Pocock during his travels through British Columbia. Subseries is arranged according to the order that photographs were processed.

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


In 1890, Pocock was hired by BC Merchants and Pictoral Magazine to travel to the Kootenay Region to promote tourism to the area by photographing it and writing about it. He also traveled through BC, especially the Kootenary Region, again in 1913 with Randle Cecil. As these photographs were mixed among photos and postcards of different places and themes, they have been arranged into this folder as their locations are generally known, but their dates are not.
