Daily journal for 1921, diary of Mrs. Frances Gladys O'Kelly
The RCAF's two photo squadrons, 413 and 414, carry out annual photographic operations covering the Dominion, and the pictures their far-ranging planes take are processed at Rockcliffe's No.1 Photo Establishment, in which ther scene above was taken. The above picture shows a mosaic, made up of hundreds of individual aerial photos laid together. When re-photographed a single picture covering a huge area results. AERIA1 photos taken by the RCAF are turned over to Mines and Resources, Army. and other government departments for mapping and other purposes. Note: this is an old picture, and unfortunately shows WD's no longer in the Air Force. - Possibly it could be cropped to excluse them.
Two million square miles of Canada are stored in special fireproff vaults at the RCAFIs No.1 Photo Establishment, Rockcliffe, preserved on photographic negatives taken by aircraft of 22 photo Wing, which has the job o f covering the Dominion by aerial photography. Shown above are just a few of the negative rolls which represent thousands of flying hours and painstaking aerial photographic work by the RCAF, and which are playing a big part in developing our natural resources and pushing back our northern frontiers. The aerial pictures are used by the Department of Mines and Resources and other government departments, as well as by the Army, for mapping. In addition, many commercial uses are made of the photos.

Taken looking up-glacier with Steve Miller, of the Stanford Research Institute, preparing the equipment for taking a record. This picture shows the general character of the ice surface over which most of the measurements were made on lower glacier and where ice thicknesses in excess of 1000 feet were obtained. This work was sponsored by the American Geographical Society and Camp No. 12 of their Juneau Ice Research Project was on the highest portion of the low peak to the extreme right. Two icefalls show in the picture, one extending from left of center of the picture and continuing to the extreme right, and the other showing to the left of center of the picture in the background. - The top surface of the ice at this point is 950 feet above sea level and the ice extends to more than 150 feet below sea level.
