https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashcroft, British Columbia
" During the period 1886-1920, the Village of Ashcroft flourished. By 1920, however, the Pacific Great Eastern Railway was built which accessed Prince George and the Northern Interior of British Columbia from Alberta. Ashcroft lost its strategic position as a supply centre for the North, spelling the end of a prosperous era."

Looking at the stamp it appears that it may be distorted a bit. Look at the lower frame lines both left and right on the post card picture.

Looks like a scanner issue just at the bottom left of the stamp.
