Gordon Wyness and Jack Lee at Bobtail campsite near Vanderhoof

Photograph depicts (from left to right) Gordon Wyness and Jack Lee at a camp scene "at Bobtail" (possibly Bobtail Lake) near Vanderhoof. As noted in the album caption, the crew had "just returned from Vanderhoof". The telegraph cabin roof and their 1930 Buick Series 40 car is visible at right.

Gordon Wyness, Philip Monckton, and Lavender Monckton by car

Photograph depicts (from left to right) Gordon Wyness, Philip Monckton, and Lavender Monckton by their 1930 Buick Series 40 car in the Williams Lake area. In this image, the car may be broken down; Wyness noted that they "were forced to spend the nite in a school house due to condenser burning out in the car". Wyness also noted that they had "just finished tying in Fraser Mtn". "Tying in" is a land survey term; it may imply that they did survey work in the Fraser Mountain area--or Wyness may have used the term more casually to note that they had just finished travelling through the area.

Lone Butte, BC

Photograph depicts a view of Lone Butte, BC. The butte formation of the same name (Lone Butte) is visible in the background; a ranch or residence is visible in the foreground. Wyness notes that Lone Butte was the "last one [they] tied in". "Tying in" is a land surveying technique. Since the photograph is dated October 1936 and Wyness described the survey trip as lasting June 5 - October 8, 1936, that implies that Lone Butte was the last location they surveyed on this trip.
