Alaska Highway Postcards
P.R.A. camp on Alcan Highway

Once the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers had built the original tote road, the Public Roads Administration (PRA) was brought in to bring the road to a higher standard. This postcard has an EKC stamp box on the reverse, so is a real photo, printed on EKC paper - this stamp box design was used until 1950.
