NOAA Photo Library Image - cgs05078

2 views: one view showing "Rosario Strait and Canal De Haro from Gulf of Georgia." while another view showing where "the N.W. Boundary between U.S. and British Columbia Possessions strikes the main land in Simiahmoo Bay, and Range for entering inner Harbor (Spit and Bluff)." These views were probably drawn by either William B. McMurtrie or James Madison Alden while on the CS ship ACTIVE.
