I've inherited a painting made by one of my ancestors (Thomas Bamford) who lived in Victoria, BC starting in 1882. He was an prolific painter and painted a lot of landscapes, most of which are real places in Canada and throughout the PNW.
I'd love to figure out what mountain this painting shows - does anyone recognize it?
When did Mr. Bamford do most of his painting? Google says he lived 1861 to 1941. Mt. Robson was first surveyed in 1893 and first climbed in 1913. Wikipedia says Robson was only approached by a "few intrepid explorers" prior to 1913 (when a railroad was built accessing the area).
