Seventy-seven years ago today, radio listeners across Canada were entertained by the story of the Frank Slide on CBC program Canadian Snapshots. No known copies of the recording exist today, but Crowsnest Pass photographer Vic Bergman has found a postcard promoting the program.
The postcard itself is an interesting piece of Crowsnest Pass history. The background is a cropped photo taken by well-known Crowsnest Pass photographer Thomas Gushul, which has been manipulated to add an image of the two radio reporters over top the original photo.
Check out Vic's blog post discussing the original CBC program and the postcard used to promote it.
