Description: A snowplough clears the snow off the road at the Summit Depot on January 19th, 1955. The Summit Depot was located along the Right Hand Branch Belone Brook,about four kilometers from Third Lake. It was at the Summit Depot from 1938 to 1975 that equipment, merchandise, and food were stored before being distributed to the various camps of the area. The Summit Depot also served as the site where Quonset huts were built. Those camps had a semicircular arching roof of corrugated metal.
