<p>Richard H. Trueman (1856-1911) had worked as a photographer in Brampton, Ontario, during the 1880s, before moving to British Columbia in 1889. Initially he photographed along the Canadian Pacific Railway main line, working with a partner, Norman Caple, before founding his own studio, R. H. Trueman & Company in Vancouver in the 1890s. In addition to portrait work, Trueman maintained his flair for railway scenes, and travelled widely along the expanding network within British Columbia and the Prairies. He photographed mountain landscapes, cities and towns, the mining industry, agriculture, and ranches well as the life and work the region’s people, including the First Nations.</p><p>A spectacular view of one of the Canadian Pacific Railway bridges spanning the Kicking Horse Pass in the Canadian Rockies on the border between British Columbia and Alberta.</p><p>See Janus record <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://janus.lib.cam.ac.uk/db/node.xsp?id=EAD%2FGBR%2F0115%2FY3062R%2F4'>here</a></p>
