Nakusp

Steamers




When we drew near the next stop, a small boy consulting his map, circulated the information that we were approaching 'Catsup,' which was his rendering of Nakusp. This is quite an important town, though not a large one. It has a fine ship yard, and the very boat on which we were traveling had been built there and that was evidence enough for us of the kind of work turned out. Nakusp has railway communication, by the Nakusp & Slocan branch of the Soo Pacific, with Rosebery, Sandon and Kaslo. These mining towns are all very much alike in the character of their population. Indians, Chinamen and a large and varied assortment of white men mingled in their streets.
