Memorial Album Views in British Columbia [T.R. Pattullo Memorial Album]

The album was created to memorialize T.R. Pattullo, a miner who came to British Columbia in 1861, and who died in Barkerville in 1879. It is not known whether the album was created by Dally during his time in British Columbia, and then later repurposed as a memorial album, or whether the album was created by using prints owned by Pattullo's friends and his brother William (also a miner), or commissioning new prints from Dally plates that were then owned by Richard Maynard. The photographs are primarily views of the Cariboo Road, First Nations and gold mines and communities in the Cariboo. Several include Pattullo. None of the photographs are captioned.

Musqueam encampment on Fraser River

Item consists of a photograph of Musqueam camp on the bank of the Fraser River. Additional explanatory notes are included in the caption of this photograph in Dally album 5 (MS-3100.5): "Native woman examining a child's head (which moved) for native runners and immolating them when found between her teeth. Mosqueem [Musqueam] Indian encampment on the Fraser River. Queens Birthday Visitors 1865." The 1865 date appears in Dally's hand in the album caption, however it may be incorrect; Dally visited New Westminster in 1867.
