Seven men dressed in native clothing stand facing the camera. The men on each end are only partially visible. Trees or bushes and the roof of some kind of structure are visible behind the men. A younger man or boy peeks out from behind the line of older men.
A smiling man faces the camera with his hands crossed in front of his chest. He wears western clothing, as do two other partially visible men on either side of him. They stand in front of a wooded wall.
The fonds consists of 7 photographs from a June 1958 centennial celebration in Alert Bay that Barwick described as having been ordered from a local cameraman. There are also 7 postcards that contain images of Alert Bay ca. 1949 or 1950 that were purchased by Barwick in the summer of 1958. Sixteen negatives were taken by Barwick at an excavation at Beach Grove in the Fraser River delta in June of 1957, likely done under the guidance of Charles Borden, a Lecturer and later Professor of Archaeology at UBC who studied the Beach Grove site from ca. 1955 to 1958. Notes on the envelope indicate these include images of D. N. Abbott, Colin McCafferty, and Nansi Swayze.
The fonds consists predominantly of slides of various petroglyphs and pictographs, primarily from locations on the Northwest Coast of British Columbia. The fonds also contains location charts of petroglyphs and the creator’s typed notes about various sites.
