On the right, in the background, the CNR line is visible, while on the left can be seen the CPR line (closer to the river) and the Trans-Provincial Highway above that. These three routes are what is being referred to in the caption that accompanies the picture, and which reads: "The Three Ways Through the Canyon." This photograph appears to have been taken by Arthur Peers, who travelled through the Fraser River Valley and worked on the construction of the Trans-Provincial Highway during the later 1920s.
