[1880-1900]. - Photograph showing Billy and George Eden, probably near the river St-Jean in Gaspé.

In the back, we can see the canoes they used to go up the river with their supplies. At that time, they were accompanying a couple of British tourists on a hunting trip.

The Eden family of Gaspé is also known for their enterprise of canoe fabrication, called "Gaspé boats".

This photograph comes from the album of a group of British tourists and hunters.
