View of Prince George from east hill

Photograph depicts a view of the city of Prince George looking west from the east hill. The confluence of the Fraser River and Nechako River is visible to the right. The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway bridge is visible at centre. The current location of where this photograph may have been taken is likely somewhere near where Highway 16 rises on the hill past the correctional centre (jail).

Jack Lee, Gordon Wyness, and Lavender Monckton in front of wooden moose in Prince George

Photograph depicts (from left to right) Jack Lee, Gordon Wyness, and Lavender Monckton standing in front of a wooden moose. The wooden moose was located on top of a hill to the east of Prince George. The wooden moose was an advertisement for John A. Lestin's taxidermy business on Third Avenue in Prince George.

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.

Bridges at Telkwa River

Photograph depicts two bridges crossing the Telkwa River. Wyness notes (on photograph verso) that this is where their survey crew traversed the river; he also noted erosion in the area.

Gordon Wyness at Bobtail campsite after returning from Bobtail Mountain

Photograph depicts Gordon Wyness wearing camping gear at the Bobtail campsite after having just returned from a night of camping without a tent on Bobtail Mountain. Wyness noted (on photograph verso) that there were pack rats in the telegraph cabin in the background of this photograph.

Jack Lee rafting on Bobtail Lake

Photograph depicts Jack Lee rafting with a sail on Bobtail Lake, as he was going over to other side of the lake to locate traverse posts (without success, according to the annotation on the photograph verso).

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.

Jack Lee, Philip Monckton, Jessie McInnes, and Archie McInnes at Pioneer Ranch

Photograph depicts (from left to right) Jack Lee, Philip Monckton, Jessie McInnes, and Archie McInnes at Pioneer Ranch.

In 1903, brothers Neil and Archie McInnes pre-empted a section of land two miles east of Cote Flat, each taking half. Archie McInnes' land later became known as Pioneer Ranch (later known as the Barnett Ranch); Neil McInnes' land became Meadowbrook Ranch. Archie McInnes married Jessie Aitken in October 1905. Pioneer Ranch became known as a stop-over for weary travellers en route from Hazelton to the Ootsa Lake area via the Telegraph Trail. Archie and Jessie McInnes had three daughters: Vera (m. Ivan Frank), Ivy (m. Eric Strimbold), and Neva (m. John Ivan Nickolichuk).

Gordon Wyness and Jack Lee at Fort St. James sign

Photograph depicts (from left to right) Gordon Wyness and Jack Lee in front of the Fort St. James sign, which reads "First white settlement in British Columbia. Established by the North West Company in 1806 by Simon Fraser and John Stuart and taken over by the Hudson's Bay Company in 1821. - General Merchandise Visitors Welcome".

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.

View of Fraser River from Fraser Mountain

Photograph depicts a view of the Fraser River from what Wyness calls "Fraser Mountain". There are a number of places named "Mount Fraser" in British Columbia, but the exact location of where this photograph was taken is unclear.

Looking SW from Mt. Begbie on the Cariboo Highway

Photograph depicts Mount Begbie, noted by Wyness to be the highest point on the Cariboo Highway at mile 85. Mount Begbie is located at approximately 51°28'33''N, 121°22'00''W, on the east side of Cariboo Hwy, between 70 Mile House and 100 Mile House, in the Lillooet Land District. Also visible in this photograph is the Cariboo Highway road.

Wyness annotated this photograph with the statement that they "tied this one in"; 'tying in' is a land survey term, implying that the crew may have also been surveying in this area.

Snoqualmie Pass summit

Photograph depicts a man, likely Gordon Wyness, sitting on the front of a 1930 Buick Series 40 car at the Snoqualmie Pass summit.

Gordon Wyness Album

  • 2020.05
  • Collection
  • 1936

In 1936, Gordon Young Wyness was employed by Philip M. Monckton, a B.C. Land Surveyor. Between June 5 and October 8, Wyness joined Monckton and a group of others on a land survey expedition in northwestern BC. The survey crew travelled to various locations in the area including Telkwa, Hazelton, Burns Lake, Francoise Lake, Vanderhoof, Prince George, Quesnel, Lytton, and Hope. Wyness documented their journey in this photograph album. Based on the photographs, it appears that the crew led by Philip Monckton consisted of Jack Lee and Gordon Wyness; Mrs. Lavender Monckton (nee O'Hara) also accompanied the group.

In addition to the 50 photographs included in the album, this collection also includes five additional unique photographs that accompanied the album.
