Town of Jasper
Jasper, Alberta in approximately 1915 (L. M. Petersen, Glenbow Museum NA-2067-1) and in May, 2006 (CW Collection 2006-05A-27). David Thompson, on his epic winter trip over Athabasca Pass in December, 1810, likely followed a routinely-used First Nation’s trail that skirted Old Fort Point, jutting into the Athasbasca River (left side of the historical photograph) across from the present-day town of Jasper.
A more exactly located repeat photograph is required. The current image is taken from a point too far north.
