Scope and content

Emil Bronlund had a Leica camera and took excellent photographs. Several of them appear in "Return to Northern British Columbia" by Jay Sherwood, along with more information about Bronlund. Bronlund put his negatives in a Kodak negative album that holds 100 images. There is a sheet in the album that provides a brief caption for each negative. Bronlund also divided most of the images into groups. Additional information for some of the images is included in this summary of the album.
