General note

Although the penciled note on the reverse says "Must be May 24" the trees are leafless - Earl Grey, Canada's Governor-General, visited the File Hills Reserve with Indian Agent W. M. Graham on October 12, 1906. The Russell car furthest to the right in the photo is driven by Eli Williamson, a prominent citizen of Indian Head.
