A Commerative plaque outside the Alaska Highway interpretive center in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada. Alcan veterans considered "Mile 0.0" actually to be at Charlie Lake, about 10 miles north of Dawson Creek, because a dirt road already existed between the two towns at the time of the arrival of the GIs. But the railhead and embarkation point on the southern end was at Dawson Creek..What did this look like 50 years ago?
