Yes, I have another in the series: www.ipernity.com/doc/wintorbos/30772605

Does yours have this rather nice back as well: www.ipernity.com/doc/wintorbos/30772623 (my back doesn't actually have that ugly discolouration -- I just did that scan before I learned how to prevent that effect, which for some reason occurs wherever there is an extended area of off-white card stock showing).

I just came randomly upon Deer Lodge at River Heights. It looks as though the Martel credit might have been trimmed off -- certainly suspiciously similar to the other two. www.ipernity.com/doc/wintorbos/44381896

this River Park image, and your images of Assiniboine Park and Deer Lodge are all included in the 1903 Martel book.

Very interesting. Barrowclough a likely suspect?

I am still really unsure about Barrowclough's involvement with the Martel book.

195 pages! :-o They probably told people wanting to send them home (overseas) to wait while they built the modern cargo ship and it's stackable containers!

600 photos! That's a lot! It must be book worth seeing!
