General note

Engine pumping water to construction camp above. The railroad construction workers were building the bridge at Dyke. Vincent Hope was the engineer in charge of the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific railroad bridge at Dyke (Entrance). Dyke was the name of the present day town of Entrance on the Grand Trunk Pacific railroad. When the Canadian Northern tracks on the north side of the river were abandoned, as well as "Old Entrance" as a station, people of the area petitioned to have the name of Entrance transferred to the Dyke Station and so it was. This bridge is still in use as a highway bridge.<br><br>
