The photos beneath are from the collection of Thomas Andrew JACKSON of Bangor, Co. Down. They were not the best quality. Many of them had been printed on non-photographic paper and perhaps with less fixative than would have been desireable. I am assuming that Thomas Jackson BROWN (my grandfather - 1879-1933) had his own darkroom, but costs and the availability of supplies were an issue. I have cropped some of the photos and also edited them for more clarity. For other photos from this era, SEE: The Glenbow Archives (on the web as well as Settlement History of the Germans in Calgary


Thomas Jackson BROWN is on the right above and then on the left beneath. He and his friend are at Exshaw, Alberta just off Highway 1, east of Canmore. There are lime deposits at the peak of the mountain in a heart shaped formation.

This is Thomas Jackson BROWN on the right with his friend, at Exshaw - presumably on the same hike as in the previous two photos..
