Arab immigrants.
Photograph by John Woodruff, 1908, Album 17, page 39.
These photographs are part of albums that were compiled by the Department of the Interior between 1892 and 1917. The albums were maintained in the Immigration Branch of the Department of Mines and Resources from 1936 to 1939. They contain photographs primarily taken by photographers John Woodruff and Horatio N. Topley, who were either employed by or on contract to the Department of the Interior, and who undertook a number of journeys in the period from 1903 to 1914 to complete the photographs.
