Postcard of Peace River at Ft. Vermilion, AB

Postcard of a steam boot on Peace River at Ft. Vermilion. Caption on front reads "Early Morning on Peace River at Ft. Vermillion[sic]" and text on reverse reads "Series No. 151. "Copyright" The H. Enida Olive Co'y Ltd Calgary. Canada." It is improbable that Pocock and Cecil ever visited Ft. Vermilion and this was likely purchased while in Calgary.

PE001006 - Tour of Northern Hudson's Bay Company Posts

Unidentified photographer. Judging by the number of aerial photographs, those of bush planes, and the large number of Hudson’s Bay Company buildings and posts, this collection may document a tour of northern Hudson’s Bay Company posts in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario by someone linked with the HBC. Photographs of people usually show them holding fox furs. At least half of the photographs were taken during winter. Nearly all photographs are captioned on the back in pencil, and some are also numbered.
Places photographed include Fort McMurray (AB), Fort Chipewyan (AB), Embarras Portage (AB), Fort Vermilion (AB), Stony Rapids (SK), Moosonee (ON), Moose Factory (ON), Albany (ON), and Attawapiskat (ON).
A guide to the identified places is interleaved within the album.
In the group photograph, 42 adults stand on the steps of a building and smile for the camera. This photograph seems unrelated to the rest of the album.
