Black and white photograph depicting internees and guards outdoors at the Castle Mountain Internment Camp in Banff, Alberta. The internees stand huddled in the middle of what appears to be a snow covered field. Guards holding rifles over their shoulders stand guard in a circle around the internees. Barrack buildings are visible in the left background and a stone compound with look-out tower is visible in the right background. Mountains are visible in the far distance. During World War I the Canadian government authorized the internment of a number of individuals across the country. Many of the men interned at this camp would be sent to the Crowsnest Pass area to work in the mines.
