Photographs Pacific Railway Survey British Columbia 1875

An album of photographs by Charles Horetzky taken during a Pacific Railway survey between June and September of 1875, looking for a Northern route for the railway. The photos are predominantly along the Homathko River (spelled Homathco here) starting from the mouth of the Bute Inlet. There is also one photo of Victoria from the same period. The photographs are numbered and have captions indicating their location. Both the album and the photos are in very good condition.

Views of British Columbia & Alaska

A book of printed drawings, by an unknown artist, of British Columbia and Alaska, published by M.W. Waitt & Co. booksellers in Victoria B.C. The book has a stylized red cover, and the spine is basically completely detached; the images are in decent shape, but the pages are coming apart at the seams.
