Shand outside his Cabin, 1963






James Shand-Harvey, an Eton-educated man of upper-class Scottish descent, called this tiny log cabin at Old Entrance home for 46 years, from 1921 until his death in 1968. "Shand" came to the Yellowhead Pass region first in 1907 working with the Dominion Land Surveyors then returned for good in 1909, packing supplies during the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway construction. The book Pack Saddles to Tte Jaune Cache by J.G. MacGregor chronicles the life of this early packer, forest ranger and trapper.
