from the back of the card: Turtle Mountain Alberta, Canada. The site of the world-famous Frank Slide, of April 29, 1903. About 70 people lost their lives when close to 82 million metric tonnes of rock came crashing down on the sleeping town of Frank in less than 2 minutes.
I learned about this horrific event many years ago in school. There was only one survivor, a young toddler. As his identity was not known, he was named Frank Slide, or at least that is what I have heard.
Visit the website of the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre for further details.
