Description
Three double-sided, plastic-covered scenic placemats with: (a) having one coloured photographic reproduction of Bow Lake on one side and a black-and-white photographic reproduction of Crowfoot Glacier on the other; (b,c) Alberta’s wildflowers on one side of both; (b) a colour photograph reproduction of Lake Louise; (c) a colour photographic reproduction of Moraine Lake. (a) The lower half of the photograph is the lake and shoreline and the top half is mountains and sky. The foreground of the lake’s shore is in the shade and mostly dark, except for a bit of green vegetation in the viewer’s extreme left-hand corner and some green bushes bunched together in the lower middle. Some sunlight hits part of the brown-coloured vegetation and logs. There are parts of dark branches of a spruce tree from top to bottom on the viewer’s left; mid-centre the shore juts out and further down, a log with some branches. On the viewer’s right there are heavy green branches, the bottom part in the shade, that form part of a spruce tree from top to bottom. The lake is sunlit from the left with reflections of the mountains in the shimmering water. The shore beyond is lined with trees and the grey mountains, with some snow on the peaks, above and further to the viewer’s right, a glimpse of a glacier. On the viewer’s far right some green vegetation and than a rust-coloured moraine, leading up to a mountain barely discernable through the spruce tree branches. The sky is blue with white, puffy clouds. On the white border, printed in black script, in viewer’s left-hand bottom corner “Bow Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada”; on the white border, printed in black italics, in viewer’s right-hand bottom corner “Photo Don Harmon” and underneath it “Distributed b Byron Harmon Photos, P.O. Box 490, Banff, Alberta”. On the opposite side of the placemat is a copy of a black-and-white photograph by Byron Harmon of Crowfoot Glacier in 1917. The foreground is branches, vegetation and one large spruce tree, on the viewer’s far right, that rises almost to the top of the photograph. Mid-centre, four packhorses, carrying their diamond-hitch loads, are grazing near two spruce trees. A bank of trees behind the horses rises steadily to the viewer’s right and the giant Crowfoot Glacier, with three complete ‘toes’, to the viewer’s right and one incomplete ‘toe’ on the left, makes up the top-half, except for a bit of sky, mid-to-far left. On the white border, in viewer’s left-hand bottom corner, printed in black lettering, is “Crowfoot Glacier 1917” and on the right-hand bottom corner “Photo B. Harmon”.(b) and (c): on one side, in the middle of the placemats is a large rectangle with a white background and “Wild Flowers of the Canadian Rockies” printed in script-style, in dark pink ink. A pink wild rose, open, a bulb without petals, and two stems with leaves, are mid-centre to viewer’s left. “Wild Rose” is printed in black script to the the left and “Alberta’s Floral Emblem” is printed, to the right of the rose, in light blue script. The outside edge of the placemat has 16 brown-framed boxes with pictures and the printed name of the following flowers: starting from viewer’s left top, clockwise: “Blue Flax”, “Yellow Vetch”, “Indian Paintbrush”, ”Pink Pussy Toes”, “Buffalo Berry”, “Heart-Leaf Arnica”, “Hare Bells”, “Tiger Lily”, “Sagebrush Buttercup”, “Wood Violet”, “Crocus”, “American Vetch” , “Strawberry”, “Yellow Columbine” , and “Fire Weed”. On the other other side of (b) (30.0x44.20cm wide), the photo is dominated by a summer view of Lake Louise, the Victoria Glacier behind, and the front lawn and swimming pool of Chateau Lake Louise. The foreground is made up, on viewer’s left, of: lawn and walkway, fence and lake walkway, three people walking, one person standing, one person sitting at a table, three spruce trees, three horses with riders, and red, yellow and white poppies. In the foreground, on viewer’s middle and right, are two more horses with riders, three people on the walkway, two people sitting on chairs at a table, more poppies, spruce trees and a white roofless structure, with openings all around, that surrounds a swimming pool with people, one diving in midair. The middle of the scene is the turquoise-blue waters of Lake Louise, with the reflection of Victoria Glacier, and a canoe with two people in it. The rest of the scene is mountains in shade on the viewer’s left, the sunlit Victoria Glacier in the middle, and wooded mountains to the right. The sky is a deep blue. On the white border, viewer’s left, printed in black ink “Distributed by United News (wholesalers) Ltd., Calgary, Alberta, Canada”; in the middle, printed in black, “LAKE LOUISE” and underneath, “BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA”. On the white border, viewer’s right-hand bottom corner, printed in black ink, “A Traveltime Canada Placemat / PMS-6218” and underneath, “printed in Canada by lawson graphics pacific limited vancouver, british columbia”. The other side of (c) (30.3x44.4cm wide) is a summer image of Moraine Lake with six of the mountain peaks behind it. The foreground is spruce trees, rocks and the blue waters of Moraine Lake. To the viewer’s left is the top of a spruce tree extending to the grey moraine above, then two more spruce trees, grey rocks, a brown rocky path leading to the viewer’s right, a small coniferous tree, and at viewer’s far right, a large spruce tree reaching the top of the image. In the viewer’s right-hand bottom corner, the words “DON HARMON” is printed in yellow. Water can seen through the trees and the reflection of the mountains and trees is discernible. Above the moraine and trees on the viewer’s far left is a shaded tree-covered slope reaching the top of the image. Coniferous trees line the lake shore, above which moraine and snow move from the five mountain peaks, toward the lake. The sky is bright blue above the grey, granite mountains, that have some snow on them. On the white border, viewer’s left-hand bottom corner, printed in black ink “Distributed by United News (wholesalers) Ltd., Calgary, Alberta, Canada” and underneath “Photo by Don Harmon”; in the middle, in black ink “MORAINE LAKE” and underneath “BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA”; in the viewer’s right-hand bottom corner, printed in black ink, “A Traveltime Canada Placemat / PMS-6218” and underneath, “printed in Canada by lawson graphics pacific limited vancouver, british columbia”.
