Blast from the Past

Replica of Parks Canada buffalo entry plaques

Souvenirs from the tax-free Jasper-Yellowhead Museum Gift Shop include:

1 Parks Canada buffalo entry plaques predate today’s ubiquitous paper and plastic park passes and evoke an era when few intrepid travellers visited Jasper by car.

2 Humorous encounters between bruins and people are recounted with vintage photos and engaging stories in the book Bears in the Alley: Among Other Places.

3 Jasper’s vibrant history is artfully presented in the museum’s annual calendar. Archive photos depict the town’s streetscape from an earlier time.—KB
