After finishing my work at the Penticton post office I wandered over to the CP (KVR) yards to take some photographs. A quick look,& you could see that remaining railway buildings were in the last stages of their lives. At one time the area was a beehive of activity, and an important industry for the town. Today, only the old timers could indicate the actual location of the old CP yards. What was, is now totally erased. As for the station, I took two pictures of it. One from the track side, & one from the street side. The green building on the left side of the station was a more recent addition to it.
