Canada's Most Famous Photo

Agree or disagree, even today no other photo taken of Canada is as familiar or so clearly defines the history of this nation.

The irony of Canada's most famous railway scene, was the absence of a train or even a locomotive in the background.

About 28 miles west of Revelstoke, the middle of nowhere in British Columbia, on November 07, 1885, the ceremonial last spike was driven to complete the Canadian Pacific Railway.
