Bereik en inhoud

Three copies of a photograph taken outside Rainbow Lodge. A group of men stand with Lorimer's old white horse, laden with dynamite about to go to Fitzsimmon's copper mine. From L-R: Billy Bailiff, Bill McDermitt, Jimmy Fitzsimmons, Alex Philip Sr, Tom Wilson, Hugh Lorimer, ?, Bill Holloway.

A later annotation on one of the copies, probably made by museum staff claims "Summer, 1918." Photograph 1989_0982 Philip appears to have been taken at the same time as this one. In 'Whistler Reflections' 0982 is labelled '1916', however we do not know where this information came from.

The photo shows the Main Lodge prior to construction of the dining hall and instalation of dormer windows.

Algemene aantekening

Extending the railway to the copper mine was briefly considered until a mining engineer deemed the mine not worth the endevor.<sup>1</sup> Hence the use of pack horses.
