- 8" x 10" B&W print. Caption: "Four minutes after the construction job was begun, the Stoney squaw and papooses are comfortably established in their new home—with a slight touch of modern conveniences to get the housework done."
- 7" x 9" B&W print. Caption: "Stoney Indian 'Mr. Big,' This is Jonas Roder, second chief of the Stoney Indians tribe, dressed in full regalia for the annual Calgary, Alberta stampede. Far from the 'vanishing American,' the chief has much to say about how his tribesmen live."
- 8" x 10" B&W print. Caption: "Golfing in the Canadian Rockies has its illusions. Chief John Hunter, a full blooded Stoney Indian, makes a picturesque caddy on the Banff course."
- 7" x 9" B&W print. Caption: “ 'From where he sits' This papoose seems quite interested in the goings-on at the Calgary, Alberta, stampede. His mother, a Stoney Indians squaw stoops to squint, yet keeps a supporting hand against her back-riding youngster."
- 7" x 8" B&W print. Caption: " 'The end of a busy day' Chief Spotted Eagle and his squaw Red Cloud Woman finish their shopping trip by indulging in a strawberry soda. Their eight-year-old daughter, Big Bird Woman (center), was a little shy." Print is very wrinkled.
