Promenade, Alert Bay B.C., Canada

Commercial postcard printed with a photograph of a wooden promenade in Alert Bay, B.C. A number of people are walking on the promenade, which sits at the bottom of a small hill. A number of structures and a totem pole are visible on the hillside. A handwritten annotation on the verso of the photograph reads: "The first building is the [?] hall & the 2nd building is the b[?] house, they are right across from the store. The house on the hill is the bookkeeper's house."

Tall totem pole, Alert Bay, BC

Photograph of a totem pole in Alert Bay, BC. This pole has been called the world's tallest totem pole, though this is a disputed fact since it is actually comprised of two pieces. The pole is not specific to a particular family, but represents multiple tribes of the Kwakwaka'wakw. The pole was completed in the late 1960's and raised in 1973. It is located near the Big House.

Govenor [sic]and Mrs. Michner [sic], Alert Bay

That pole was eventually raised on her grave.
