I am writing about a Library and Archives Canada collection, "Quebec City Passenger Lists Index 1865-1900." This is a collection of indexed names and digital images said developed from RG 76, the official Canadian immigration documents.
I've been able to locate the passenger list line entries for my ancestors. (Very exciting.) I also want to be able to view the pages that precede and follow that on which my ancestors are recorded.
I'd have preferred to browse all the pages of this particular list, but most certainly want to view the first and last pages of the list. (The first page and last pages often have information about the ship/voyage that isn't repeated on the other pages).
After much tinkering, the best I have been able to do is poke at random indexed entries and save the different named image files that return.
After quite of bit of poking, I've manage to save eight sequentially numbered image files (e003533634.jpg through and including e003533641.jpg). For all my poking, I have still not saved an image that I would assume to be the first page of the list.
Likewise, I haven't made enough sense out of the image URLs to manually browse the different pages either.
I'm hoping the diverse expertise here on Genealogy.SE might have a solution for me. Some details follow.

Any suggestions or workarounds for how I might browse these images is much appreciated.
