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
