Old Photo of Squamish, BC, Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

The seller believes this photo is from the ALCAN, but the photo is blank on the back, so I’m not sure why the seller thinks this. Squamish is just north of Vancouver and closer to San Francisco than Dawson Creek. Still, it’s a neat old photo. (Squamish has been used as a film location substitute for Seattle-area-based movies like the Walking Tall remake).
