Festival of Postcards - Geography

This is a card from my dad's collection. He collected cards on trips that he took, and this one shows Mt Robson in British Columbia (which is stated on the left side). On the right side it's a signature - Henry Rowed (?) / Jasper. The pictures to the side show a dahl sheep, some girls dressed for the beach, and a fellow golfing - attractions of the area. On the back: "Mount Robson - This, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, thrusts its perpetually ice encrusted summit two miles above the valley of British Columbia's Fraser River. Passengers on the crack trans-continental trains of Canadian National Railways, view this magnificent mountain in all its splendor after a short 65 miles journey from Jasper."
