A Climber's Rustic Lunch

Some mountaineers chose to spend their weekends and holidays in shacks they built on the slopes of the north shore mountains near Vancouver. During summer they hiked or climbed, and in winter, skied or snowshoed. The couple seen here in the 1940s is preparing a simple lunch for themselves. A pistol is at hand just in case a bear wishes to investigate the aroma of homemade bread.
