Thirza Pidgeon’s 1937 World Tour – 4 October: Medicine Hat to Calgary, AB – 195 miles

Monday, 4 October 1937

Left Medicine Hat, this morning, worst drive I have ever had, over fear full roads, greasy, heavy and slushy – shocking state, did not get to Calgary until 8.30  – where we had tea in an auto camp – all pretty tired, The car is just covered in mud. Snow everywhere about 204 miles out from Calgary. Pretty big town.
