Also titled ‘Wilcox view’ – taken from Wilcox trail on the opposite mountain peak. A view of Athabasca glacier as it was in 1917, when photographed by Arthur Oliver Wheeler during the period he was working on the Inter-provincial boundary survey between BC and Alberta. I’ve gone up there as well to re-take the same image; it is a beautiful view, and a startling difference between 1917 and over 100 years later in 2021.
The source image for this etching is courtesy of the online Mountain Legacy Project database (taken from the station at Wilcox Ridge, No. 1). Who are working to re-photograph and compare each view for scientific data sets and studies.
