[Note about report by Major L.T. Burwash]

Note by an unknown author and recipient. It reads: "I find that the library of our department has 3 copies of this most interesting report by Major Burwash and there is also a copy in the National Archives, Geological Survey Museum, and RCMP libraries. Ottawa is therefore provided. It seems to me that other research libraries such as the University of Toronto would wish to have a copy, perhaps Prof. Carpenter. Our librarian was unable to suggest a price as he calls it a 'collection item'."

The Uno Langmann Family Collection of B.C. Photographs, donated by Uno and Dianne Langmann and Uno Langmann Limited, consists of more than 20,000 rare and unique early photographs from the 1850s to the 1970s. It is considered the premiere private collection of early provincial photos, and an important illustrated history of early photographic methods. The photographs were taken by a wide range of photographers. Some well-known photographers represented in the collection include William Notman, Charles MacMunn, Frederick Dally, Charles Horetzky, Charles Gentile, Philip Timms, Yucho Chow, R.
