Vintage real photo postcard [1] 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.“
