1.1 View of Joseph's Prairie (ca. 1900)

  1.1 View of Joseph’s Prairie (circa 1900) to the north-east with the new railway line heading out of Cranbrook and the Rocky Mountains in the distance. Cranbrook St. (the Strip) now parallels on the other side of the tracks in this location, close to the present 4th St. N. This early view probably shows how the basin, in which Cranbrook sits, looked during centuries of nomadic use by the Ktunaxa, the indigenous First Nations in this part of the Kootenay region.
