0402.0007: Aerial View of Baker Street, Cranbrook
A postcard photo by E. Anderson showing an aerial view of Cranbrook. Back reads: "Originally known as Joseph's Prairie, Cranbrook sprang into prominence with the arrival of the railroad in the late 1890's. Today it has become the major transportation hub of southeastern B.C., and serves as a gateway to the Canadian Rockies. With a population well over 15,000, booming Cranbrook is also the economic and administrative nerve center of the East Kootenay. Baker Street appears in the middle with the new Cranbrook Mall and hospital beyond. The snowy Steeples rise in the distance."
