This is an abandoned buildling at Bankhead, Alberta, near Banff in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Bankhead was a coal mining town that supplied bitumen to the Canadian Pacific Railway for its locomotives. It was closed down by the CPR in 1922 because the mine was not profitable, although strike action a couple of months before may have been a factor.
The shells of a number of buildings remain at the site, along with short stretches of railway tracks and several large piles of coal slag. The Railway Station building was moved whole to Tunnel Mountain Road in Banff. The town is off limits at this time of year, but if you’re in the area this summer be sure to stop by. Take the Minnewanka road off the Trans-Canada Highway.
