Provenance: In collection of Judge William Norman Bole (1846 - 1923), Westminster, B.C.; by descent in 1923 to collection of John Percy Hampton Bole (1882-1966) and Norah Kathleen (McAllister) Bole (1892-1984), Vancouver, B.C.; by descent in the family by 2020 to private collection, Vancouver, B.C.

Note: Listings of auctions in November 1884, July 1885 (lot 29), November 1885 (lot 20 on page 4), and May 1886 (lot 25) include paintings with this title but the information in those listings is insufficient to either include or exclude the possibility that any of them are this painting. Similarly, the New Westminster, British Columbia, Morning Ledger of 30 Sept 1891 on page 3, column 1, reported that five paintings, including one with this title, were sold at an auction in New Westminster on 29 September 1891 to George Raymond. Since this sale occurred in British Columbia, this painting may be the one named in that report.
Identification: Title from the artist's verso inscription.
In index(es): Title list, Indian encampments as incidental subjects, the Three Sisters, Oregon
