Part of Philip Fonds
Two copies of a photograph taken outside Rainbow Lodge. A group of men stand with Hugh Lorimer's old white horse (Lorimer hired out packhorses to trappers, prospectors and hunting parties), laden with dynamite about to go to Fitzsimmon's copper mine. From L-R: Bill Holloway, Jimmy Fitzsimmons, Bill Bailiff, Bill MacDermott, Alex Philip Sr and Tom Wilson.
Annotation on the back of one of the copies reads "Around 1916, Bill Holloway prospector, Jimmy Fitzsimmons of Fitzsimmons mine. Bill Bailiff, Bill MacDermott, Alex Philip (senior), Tom Wilson, leaving for prospecting trip to Fitzsimmons Glacier area mine."
Annotation on the back of the second reads "First saddle house in Alta Lake country - man with packing dynamite up to Fitzsimmons mine (half way up Blackcomb)".
In 'Whistler Reflections' this photograph is captioned '1916', however we do not know where this information came from.
