Dr. Cora Johnstone Best (right) and mountaineer Conrad Kain standing atop a rocky outcropping near Starbird Glacier in British Columbia, Canada, 1923. The photo was taken by Best’s climbing partner, Audrey Shippam. The scene was photographed simultaneously by Byron Harmon, and his shot is the one of the most iconic pictures in Canadian Alpine history.
