This book was produced by the National Film Board, Still Photography Division, and published the year I became one of the first ever "female" Canadian Immigration Officers (not to be mistaken with Customs or the newer "border guards"). To be precise, one of only three in Alberta, posted at the border town of Coutts, across from Sweetgrass, Montana.(There were some other "firsts" while I was there, thank God on a time specific contract.)
Our office was on the second floor of the brown building half way up the middle left of this very foreshortened picture. In the foreground the US border office.
At the time, the person I could most rely upon was the Official-in-Charge on "the other" side.
Mr. B.D., Sir, a very belated, but very much heartfelt thank you for listening, supporting, mentoring and extending the warmth and courtesy of a very special kind and gentle neighbor.
How times change! Have we too, changed?
