Bow glacier lake, 1903

A view of the Bow glacier as it was in 1903, when photographed by Byron Harmon. (While the date is listed as anywhere from 1903 to 1942, photos definitively dated from 1917 shows the beginning of Bow glacier falls as the ice melted, so I suspect this is taken in 1903, at a similar time to the Vaux family trip in 1902.)
