Abstract
Pertains to a pictorial work that aimed to capture the mountain section of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The author, Donald Bain, argued that the mountain section of the Canadian Pacific Railway, while the most interesting, had been neglected the most. The photographs in the publication had been captured by Nicholas Morant, and were compiled in the hopes of appealing to railway enthusiasts.

Red and white grain elevators are at the centre of the print. They bear the logos of “Alberta Pacific” and “United Grain Growers.” Four are larger and in the foreground. Another one is visible further away. Smaller outbuildings and telephone poles surround the grain elevators. The sky is a clear blue that fades to white on the horizon. Thin streaky clouds stretch across the print. The foreground is green, white and dark brown. It looks like it has been plowed in roughly even rows.

Abstract
"Sarah Carter's "Imperial Plots: Women, Land, and the Spadework of British Colonialism on the Canadian Prairies" examines the goals, aspirations, and challenges met by women who sought land of their own. Supporters of British women homesteaders argued they would contribute to the "spade-work" of the Empire through their imperial plots, replacing foreign settlers and relieving Britain of its surplus women. Yet far into the twentieth century there was persistent opposition to the idea that women could or should farm: British women were to be exemplars of an idealized white femininity, not toiling in the fields. In Canada, heated debates about women farmers touched on issues of ethnicity, race, gender, class, and nation. Despite legal and cultural obstacles and discrimination, British women did acquire land as homesteaders, farmers, ranchers, and speculators on the Canadian prairies. They participated in the project of dispossessing Indigenous people. Their complicity was, however, ambiguous and restricted because they were excluded from the power and privileges of their male counterparts. Imperial Plots depicts the female farmers and ranchers of the prairies, from the Indigenous women agriculturalists of the Plains, to the land army women of the First World War."-- Provided by publisher.
Contents
