Great hunting in Northern Ontario!

Dale Wilson, Algoma Eastern Railway. Nickel Belt Rails 1977
The Algoma Eastern Railway served the nickel mining industry in and around Sudbury. Along with the ore trade, they apparently they also rented out cabooses to hunters. The picture was taken about 1920 when a license was $2.00 and allowed the taking of two deer. These cabooses (vans in Canada) were homebuilt from boxcars.
