In this image, dated 1922, people flock to Invermeres Fort Point for the grand opening of the David Thompson Fort. The fort is visible in the background behind the teepees, which were referred to as the Kootenay Indians Camp. Robert Randolph Bruce, miner, prospector, and advocate of the Columbia Valley (who became the Lieutenant Governor of B.C. four years after this photo was taken), is standing next to the woman wearing a white skirt (at left of photo).
