Alice Irene Landon (nee Sherry) and her son Brian D. Sherry in front of a totem pole in Fort Langley, BC on Labour Day, 1942. Alice is wearing glasses, a vertical striped dress and a hat with a ribbon. She is sitting with her knees in front and legs behind her, leaning on her left hand. Brian is on her right side sitting between her and the totem pole. Brian is wearing a light bucket hat and a button-down shirt with dark shorts. His legs and arms are stretched out in front of him. The wood totem pole is only partially visible; it consists of four animals from top to bottom, which include a bear, whale, eagle, and raven. People are visible along the edge of the field. There is grass, flowers, trees, and mountains in the background.
