Dublin Core

Title

Surveyors in Saskatchewan, 1871

Subject

Dominion land surveying

Description

This is a photograph of a team of surveyors seemingly taking break while on their voyages "on the North Saskatchewan." Of particular interest is what look like Red River Carts in the background. It has been noted that Red River Carts were used extensively by Dominion Land Surveyors in the early 1870s, since they provided reliable transportation for them during their lengthy trips over huge distances.
