Henry Selby's 1905 survey crew sometimes had to survey through "brule", land littered with fallen timber caused by forest fires or strong winds.

1905 Baseline Survey

The series consists of photographs taken in 1905 when Jim Somerville was a member of Henry Selby's survey crew. Some of the photographs are taken at the 20th base line camp as that was the starting point. The photographs show the environment of the area east of the Smoky River, the activities of his survey crew, and the life of a surveyor. There are also several photographs of buildings in Grouard and Stopping Places in the area.
