A costumed interpreter plays his part at the South Gate of the Fort Walsh National Historic Site in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park in Saskatchewan, Canada. Dressed in uniform from the days when this area was used by the North West Mounted Police, tourists to Fort Walsh can relive the years of 1875.
After the fort was established, it was an important location which was heavily armed until it closed in 1883 when the railroad was built. The North West Mounted Police were moved to the new location in Regina in 1942 and Fort Walsh was then used by the police for breeding horses.
