Danton's Cairn Site at Alexandria, BC

During the early 1980's at the Kaleden Restaurant they had a display of pictures posted, on one trip I looked them over and asked the owner where he had got them. He said he had a customer that was from Cawston who asked him if he wanted some truck pictures. He went on to tell me the lady told him she ran a Truck Stop up the Alaska Highway. I told him where the pictures were taken and asked him to describe the lady. He described Shannon to a T and offered the pictures to me to get copied. There were probably a couple of hundred so I took a few to copy, he said you are the only person who knew anything about them. On my next monthly trip to Kaleden I returned the copies I had made, but due to a run change I didn't get back until 1995 and they were gone. So thank you Shannon and your sister for taking these wonderful pictures 50 years ago(1964) Bruce Harger.
