History / Biographical
One exciting experience on a ten day return trip to the Rose Mine out from Hazelton, happened when Al Bannister and Stewart Thompkins were on a steep incline on a road coming out of Moricetown. Stewart was pulling the outfit during the night shift of the 24 hour change. Bannister was in the caboose preparing a bite to eat when he realized the caboose was backing down the hill. Bannister had the presence of mind to grab the coal-oil lantern and jump out the door. Had he not, the frame would have gone up in smoke. The rescue team arrived and brought the two men into Smithers where the two had their first hot complete meal and comfortable bed to sleep in for 10 days. THE GOOD OLD DAYS, EH, BOYS
Notes
Snow plowing outfit of Dept. of Public Works located at Smithers B.C. This bulldozer is the first one or one of the first to work out of Smithers. The wooden caboose was part of the equipment taken along on long shifts of snowplowing roads for rest periods and meal preparations. Alfred Bannister is the operator in this picture. This time of year the road conditions were icy and treacherous.
