A knowledgable client has suggested that this is by William McFarlane Notman [1826-1891]; see Art Inspired by the Canadian Rockies, Purcell Mountains, and Selkirk Mountains 1809-2012, by Nancy Townshend, pg,15-19; The Notman photographs are historic albumen prints, the original printing process that lasted into the mid-1890’s.
