Black-bound sketchbook "B"

One sketchbook with 33 drawings by Emily Carr within. The images include cartoons with verse, posed models. Pages of poetry includes "The Olsson Student" which refers to a separate series of images (PDP06117 to PDP06124) created by Carr, presumably also in 1904 depicting Carr's life in St Ives 1901-1902. Sketches and cartoons set in both Vancouver and Victoria are also included here.

The Gathering of the Camas was a Ceremony

This watercolour depicts a group of likely Lekwungen women gathering camas amongst arbutus trees. The islands and mountains in the background suggest the location maybe be from the vantage of present day Oak Bay. The artist included a descriptive card that reads: “Camosun,” Indian name for Victoria. The gathering of the “camass” was a ceremony. Only start in Indian diet.
