<p style='text-align: justify;'>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 1894. In addition to portrait work, Trueman maintained his flair for railway scenes, and travelled widely along the expanding network or by steamship 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 style='text-align: justify;'>Revelstoke was an important rail centre founded during the 1880s to support the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Eagle Pass runs through the Gold Range of the Monashee Mountains in British Columbia and formed the final part of the transcontinental railway, which was completed in 1885. At this time, Revelstoke supported the expanding Kootenay mining district to the south.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>See Janus record <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://janus.lib.cam.ac.uk/db/node.xsp?id=EAD%2FGBR%2F0115%2FY3062R%2F9'>here</a></p>
