British Columbia - Kamloops


The World War I memorial was constructed in 1925, and later more plaques were affixed for the Second World War.

This is The Overlanders of 1862, by Victoria Street and 1st Avenue, celebrating the pioneers who trekked west from Winnipeg for gold and ended up founding Kamloops.

The 1909 Old Kamloops Courthouse is right there at Seymour Street.

To the scenery half of the page, these photos face north along Hillside Drive entering Kamloops, panning from left to right while looking across the Thompson/South Thompson River.

The most prominent peak in that panorama is Mt. Peter, also known as "Tk'emlups te Secwepemc" in Anglicized Shuswap. The lower one just to its west is Mt. Paul. These photos look north and east from Columbia Street at 3rd Avenue as Mt. Peter trails off slowly.

Another view of Paul and Peter, looking north from the Red Bridge.
