Sketch based on photo by photographers Hall and Lowe, - Skene Lowe and James D. Hall were Winnipeg, Manitoba photographers who were in partnership from 1882 until 1892. Before relocating to British Columbia in 1885, they took a number of photos of the Bell Farm, including the earliest-known images of the Farm, taken in the fall of 1883.

Engraved copies of Hall and Lowe's images appeared in a number of publications throughout the 1880s and 1890s.
