Williams Lake, Cattle Country, and Quesnel on the PGE (mid-1940s)

This clip is another excerpt from Rails to Romance, a promotional film/travelogue produced for the Pacific Great Eastern Railway in 1945-47 by the BC Government Travel Bureau.

This section of the film depicts the Cariboo region, from the Williams Lake area to Quesnel.  It highlights cattle ranching in the region, and underscores the importance of the PGE in the economic development of central British Columbia.
