Photographer's Note

July 31, 2005.
For our first halt we plunge in the history. Our road indeed crosses an important place for the rail. November 7, 1885, in Craigellachie, one posed the last spike on the way of railroad of the transcanadienne. An event which was marked by a ceremony. Today there remains the nail (I do not know if it is the original) gilded. A memorial was posed on November 7, 1985 at the time of the 100th birthday. There remain now some small presentations enabling you to hold a hammer, to make you photograph in the skin of the character who planted this spike, and a small gift shop.

I put in the WS, a photograph of the event...
