Post subject:  "Horse Shoe" at Rogers Pass. Canadian Pacific Rai

For Sale: Photo, Circa 1900, of Horse Shoe at Rogers Pass. Photo measures 13 feet by 4 feet, 6.7 by 1.92 meters. Glass front with 6 inch redwood frame. Photo hung in the office of the Candian Pacific Railway in Los Angeles office at 6th & Grand. When office closed photo was moved to the basement and hung on the wall. When discovered in 1964 photo was unrecognizable with a coating of dust and considered to be a "lump" on the concret wall. I removed the photo with help of the people who were to demolish the building within the hour. The photo does not appear in the Canadian Pacific Railway Archives, but photos taken in the area clearly identify the photo at that location; and the photo has a plaque on the frame: "Horse Shoe Rogers Pass, Canadian Pacific Rockies". $8,000 US Dollars, crated with shipping extra.
