Three Children

Learn about the Northwest Coast Indians at

Several years ago I scanned some photos that my wife’s niece had been keeping in a shoebox taken in the 1950s and 1960s. These were taken at several of the Indian Reserves along the west coast  of Vancouver Island. My wife lived in several of the various locations, Hot Springs, Ceepeecee, Zeballos and Nuchatlitz.

These photos came from non standard sized negatives that would not fit in my film scanner. I resorted to photographing them with macro lens agains a backlit piece of paper and inverting the image with software. I was pleased that I was able to capture these images.
