Title: Onderdonk's Way

Description: A virtual exhibit curated by Roger H. Boulet for the Kamloops Art Gallery, Onderdonk's Way "features the archival photographs documenting one of the most remarkable engineering feats in Canada's history: the building of a railway from Port Moody to Craigellachie in British Columbia, Canada, a distance of about 342 miles (547 km). The Contractor for the project was Andrew Onderdonk (1848-1905)." The site includes an item-level inventory of six photograph albums preserved by the British Columbia Archives, and an essay by David Mattison, "The Photographers of Onderdonk's Way".
