The Canadian scenes are of the Saguenay, the Saint Lawrence, Ste. Agatha des Monts, Sault Ste Marie (Hudson Bay Company fort), the Rockies, Brockville. Many of the scenes are of rivers leading one to suspect the artist was an angler. Two include anglers in the scenes. A few are quick sketches, in my opinion done by a better than average watercolourist. Item #36455
