The Barren Lands Digital Collection. J.B. Tyrrell's expeditions for the Geological Survey of Canada, 1892-94. 'This site documents two exploratory surveys of the Barren Lands region west of Hudson Bay, in northern Manitoba and Saskatchewan and the area now known as Nunavut. Drawing on materials from the J.B. Tyrrell, James Tyrrell and related collections at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, University of Toronto, it includes over 5,000 images from original field notebooks, correspondence, photographs, maps and published reports.

Some of these are really awesome pictures. I have a new background- from one of the missions at Slave Lake. Cool photos.

Great stuff, plep. If you're ever in Toronto, do stop by the Fisher Library - it's a beautiful facility, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. You don't need to be a member of the University to gain access, either.
