Time Traveller: An expedition to Mount Brunswick in 1921

This photo is part of a vast collection of images depicting hikes in the North Shore Mountains

Here is a photo taken on May 1, 1921 marking the start of a British Columbia Mountaineering Club expedition to Mount Brunswick. The photo, taken by P.R. Lockie, is housed inside one of Neal Carter’s photo albums that depicts several hikes in the North Shore Mountains.

Carter, a marine biologist, was a prolific mountaineer and skilled surveyor, photographer, and cartographer. He created the first topographical maps of Garibaldi Park and the Tantalus Range.

Mount Neal is named in his honour. Visit the MONOVA Archives to view three of his albums with 800+ photos he collected!
