Vintage real photo postcard  from Trail, BC showing the Trail Camera Crafts in the foreground and an ore smelter, today owned by Teck Resources. The latter one is to be seen in the background – mind the smoke stacks.
The back of the postcard is labeled by hand:
“Trail, where the ore from the “Kimberly Mines” [zinc, lead, iron sulfides] is smolten. Dirty, naturally. Country without much beauty. Barren hills, since a big forestfire took all of the flora a good 30 years ago.”
