List of Figures
History of 17th Field Regiment Royal Canadian Artillery
Editor's Note:   The quality of the photographs in the printed book leaves much to be de­sired.  Scan­ning them pro­duces large files, some­thing norm­ally as­soc­iat­ed with high res­olu­tion.  But here, the de­tail in the scans con­sists of arti­facts of the print­ing pro­cess ra­ther than pho­to­graphic de­tail.  A par­tial solu­tion in­volves ob­tain­ing the pho­to­graphs from other sources.  Some are held by Li­brary and Ar­chives Ca­na­da and can be scan­ned di­rectly from the pho­to­graphic ne­ga­tive or posi­tive, pro­duc­ing a bet­ter qual­ity im­age with a smal­ler file size.  This so­lu­tion has been partly im­ple­mented as noted in the list of fig­ures be­low.  This list has been con­struc­ted after the fact, as the ori­ginal book did not contain one.
