Most of you probably haven't met Luke or Luella Anthony, who sadly have passed away. Luke was the person who redeveloped Jasper in the 80's and the mastermind for much of what we know and love in Jasper. When I met him years ago, he gave me a lot of the Jasper documents, maps and notes from the 1980's. Among the treasure trove was a VHS tape which he explained was sales material they used to market and sell the properties. Luke was in partnership with a young realtor named Bill Werner who I believe co-produced this sales video. Bill is still in the area and selling real estate in Alamosa. We've talked on the phone a few times, but never met in person.
Well, I stumbled across this VHS tape and Marisa was nice enough to have it digitized for all of us to enjoy! If you pay close attention, you will recognize many of the scenes.. and even some of the people! I see a young and handsome David Slater and I'm pretty sure Bill Oster is there too. Charlie Sachet, the Evans and many other familiar faces. Kelly Slater, was that you?!
