Photographer's Note

These are pictures of four totem poles (or "crest poles") in the ROM, all were made in the 19th century by the Nisga’a people and Haida people of British Columbia's coast, and brought to Toronto in the early 1920s. They are memorial poles, carved from western red cedar, and commemorate a family history. The top two pictures show the top and bottom part of the largest one, which stands over 24.5 m (80 ft), the others are details of the other poles. They are located near the Queen's Park entrance of the museum, inside the staircase.
