General NotesAn elderly white man (identified as B.F. Shaw) with a full beard poses in a grassy field, raising his left hand to his brow. He is dressed in a three-piece woolen suit, white shirt, and knee-length overcoat. He holds a cane in his right hand. Two large dogs rest just behind him. To his right is a conically shaped pile of rocks or rock cairn. A mountain range is visible in the background.
TCI NotesAn outside photograph of a man (Colonel B.F. Shaw?) standing next to a rock cairn in an open field. The rock cairn is the location of the Battle of the Grande Ronde, which was in July of 1856. The man is dressed in a suit, holding a cane in his right hand. His left hand is up to his forehead as if he is looking for something off in the distance. The rock cairn is about two feet in height and about one and a half-feet wide. Just behind the man are two dogs that are lying down. The background is a portion of the Blue Mountains.
