Description

"Yale: This view affords a comprehensive idea of the nature of the Fraser River Canyon. Yale occupies a bench above the river, in a deep cul-de-sac in the mountains, which rise abruptly and to a great height on all sides. It was formerly a gold-mining town and an important outfitting point for prospectors."

Excerpt from "ACROSS CANADA BY C. P. R.", Section 7--The Pacific Coast; booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, 1928.
