Scope and content

The locations of the photographs are not identified, but the locales seem likely to be in northern Alberta. One photograph shows three men standing in front of a building with the sign Embarras Airport over its entrance - presumably from Embarras, Alberta. Another photograph shows a man standing on one of the pontoons of a Territories Air Service plane. The content of the newspaper clipping also suggests a northern-Alberta setting, as it discusses a proposed buffalo hunt in Wood Buffalo National Park. Indeed, many of the photographs in the album likely capture this event.

The album contains several photographs of buffalo and, more specifically, of buffalo hunting. These include images of hunters posing beside dead buffaloes and field dressing carcasses. The album also contains photographs of more generic hunting and fishing scenes as well as of lakes and other northern landscapes. Images of town sites (some of which are aerial shots) are also present.

The album also contains images of airplanes, ferries, canoes, and other forms of transportation. Groups of men (perhaps the hunting parties) have been captured in various settings. The album also contains several photographs of a game warden or other uniformed official caring for young animals.
