Description

This page is from George Sternberg's personal photo album. These sepia-toned photos were collected by paleontologist George Sternberg. The top two side-by-side photos serve as a panorama that Sternberg took of the Edmonton formation at the Red Deer River, which shows the many spruce trees scattered throughout the area. The highest point of the formation is right at the midpoint of the panorama. The bottom left photo shows more of the Edmonton formation, as well as a small section of the Red Deer River. The bottom right photo was taken from the bottom of a large coulee. Underneath each of these photos is an inscription written by Sternberg.
