    Thank you for posting the Gentile images. My name is Cesare Marino, I am the author of “The Remarkable Carlo Gentile, Italian Photographer of the American Frontier” (Carl Mautz Publishing, 1998). I have been researching images for a revised, expanded edition of my book, so I appreciate your new posting. In the past, I did some identifications of Gentile photographs at the Library of Congress; your second image reads “[Illegible] House on the …]. If you could email me the complete scan front and back of that photograph, I can try to decipher the illegible word, or words. Also, unless you have information that I do not know, I do not understand why you put the range of dates for those Gentile’s photographs as [1860-1885?. We know that Gentile arrived in Victoria, BC, in 1862 and left in 1866 (C. Marino, “Carlo Gentile”, 1998, pp. 5-16), so your braketed dates should read [1862-1866].

      Hi Cesare,
      Thanks so much for the corrections on the date metadata for the Gentile images. We really appreciate the help and expertise of researchers like yourself when it comes to enriching our metadata! I have passed your comment along to Rare Books and Special Collections and they will be in touch with you soon regarding UL_1019_0005
      Best regards,

      The Pemberton Museum (and BC Archives) identifies this house as “Kettrell’s Halfway House” – Lake Route (C.Gentile 1865)
