Scope and content
This series consists of 368 agricultural photographs of Western Canada (Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia) that are primarily attributed to Canadian survey photographer Charles Horetzky (1840-1900). There are many photographs of livestock (cattle and sheep), wheat fields, irrigation systems (specifically the Western Section of C.P.R.'s Irrigation Block), and produce, including some unusually large vegetables (cabbage, lettuce, potato, etc.) and fruit. Some photographs are attributed to the Edwards Brothers, who operated a photography firm in Vancouver around the turn of the century.
