This video clip consists of excerpts from two BC government films. The brief look at the town of Hope is from the travelogue The Fraser Valley, British Columbia (1947-48). The Gold Rush scenes are historical re-enactments from the documentary The Fraser Canyon (1957-59).
The source films are BC Archives items AAAA1954 and AAAA1948, respectively, at the Royal BC Museum.
