CNR Basque

Photograph taken on mile 58.5 from Kamloops. Davie notes that he found this picture to be particularly depressing as he had been there 15 months prior and took a photograph of an abandoned depot which stood where the name sign now stood on the far side of the tracks. It was right near this spot that the "last spike" was driven on the Canadian Northern Railway between Edmonton and Vancouver on 23 Jan. 1915.
