Blairmore Historic Courthouse, Blairmore, Alberta

I took this photograph while driving through the Crowsnest Pass with my sons last August. According to Wikipedia, Blairmore elected Canada's first communist town council (were there others?), and the Crowsnest Pass was the site of Canada's last train robbery. It is also know for rum runners (historically, not now), and is close to the Frank Slide. If you are traveling in the area, I highly recommend the interpretive centre at Frank Slide.The courthouse is now used as an educational facility.
