The Alaska Highway, 1943

      Technically, the Alaska highway is known as the Alcan project - a coined word and an ugly one. Few like it. To the tough men who built it, the highway is known simply as The Road. (Don Menzies, The Alaska Highway (Edmonton: Stewart Douglas, 1943))

The map was printed by the Alberta Travel Bureau in 1943.
