- Curator's comments
Probably derive from the work of an official photographer travelling with the Governor-General of Canada on a tour up the West Coast of Vancouver Island in 1929 in the ship Princess Norah. Lord Willingdon was the uncle of Mrs Egerton; she was in the party and is included in Am,B50.4.
Production: It is thought that the Asahel Curtis is very likely the photographer who took this photograph, because one other photograph in this series (AM,B50.5, photograph of Joseph John) is positively identified as being photographed by him; he context and time period also make this likely.
