Aerial car ferry, Boston Bar to North Bend, British Columbia

Canada 1964.  The Official Handbook of Present Conditions and Recent Progress.  
Ottawa:  Canada Year Book, Handbook and Library Division, Dominion Bureau of Statistics, 1964.

Ken Liddell.  This is British Columbia.  Toronto:  The Ryerson Press, 1958.

The only aerial automobile ferry in North America operated from 1940 to 1986.  It must have been a hoot to ride across while still inside your car!  The gondola has been preserved and put on display.  See Postal History Corner.
