Al Lawrence stands among scrub brush in snow with his rifle. The caption "Al Lawrence assistant to Assayer Duff and Surveyor Balcom- 'Loaded for bar' [colloquial for "bear"] with all the gun pistols, and knives of Staff." is handwritten on the album paper next to the photograph. "Loaded for bar" was an expression meaning maximally equipped with weapons, as if anticipating an encounter with a grizzly bear. Dressed and equipped as he is, Lawrence looks like a cowboy instead of a mine worker. This photograph is attached to page 9. The approximate date is 1880s.
