In my judgement, this is definitely an image made by S. J. Thompson, although his first initials do not appear on the print (and although it isn’t attributed to SJT by the City of Vancouver Archives). It is technically possible that John E. Thompson made this image, but to my eye, it cries out “S. J. Thompson made this!”

(Note the evidence of habitation at this time on Deadman’s Island).
