Biographical Note:
Humphrey Lloyd Hime (1833-1903) was a photographer and surveyor with the firm "Armstrong, Beere, and Hime, Civil Engineers, Draughtsmen and Photographists" in Toronto, Ontario. In 1958 Hime was hired as the photographer for Henry Youle Hind's Assiniboine and Saskatchewan Exploring Expedition.
Historical Note:
The Assiniboine and Saskatchewan Exploring Expedition of 1858 was commissioned by the Canadian Government to establish a reliable trade route between Lake Superior and the Red River. The Hudson's Bay Company's permit to trade exclusively in the Canadian interior was set to expire in 1859. To procure an extension, a thorough investigation of the area to document its topography, vegetation, native life, and settlement potential was required. Under the charge of Professor Henry Youle Hind, a geologist and naturalist at Trinity College in Toronto, the explorers were instructed to obtain comprehensive geographic information that would help to create maps illustrating the natural and cultural features of the land between the Saskatchewan and Assiniboine rivers.
