3.5 Images of the Canadian Prairies [ca. 1913]

Subseries consists of photographs of unidentified people and places on the Canadian Prairies. It is unclear when these photographs were taken but the majority may have been created around the time of Pocock and Cecil's 1913 journey as they were crossing the Canada by train from New York to Calgary. One photograph was likely taken around 1890 as the style of it matches those in Pocock's 1890 scrapbook. Subseries is arranged according the order that photographs were processed.
