Scope and content

Dupuis' cabins at Lac la Plonge - cost $125 each to build, excellent construction standard for the area.

Dupuis' Cabins, Lac la Plonge.

Low, wet, and boggy land along N shore of Lac la plonge to N of present development - burnt over area - useless for building.

Sand pressure ridge on N shore of Lac la Plonge - Jack pine on pressure ridge - to the N of ridge there is wet land - too narrow in upland for development as extensive resort area.

Sand pressure ridge at Lac la Plonge. This entire series of 70 photos taken by B. Baker in 1956, plus a similar series taken earlier that same summer, were of prospective tourist and park development sites. Some of these places did later become thus developed, such as the very large Meadow Lake Provincial Park, and Jackfish Lake, but others did not.

Lac la Plonge: Sand pressure ridge now having an eroded cut bank. Jack pine and poplar vegetation, slough to rear of ridge. Beach = 4 feet wide. Pressure ridge varies from 6 to 10 feet in height.

Sand pressure ridge at Lac la Plonge. This site appears to have been one of those that was rejected for consideration for further development by the Province.
