The building in the foreground is still standing today (April 30, 2010) now located at the corner of HWY 141 & Victoria Street West. Celebration is unknown, but we think that it might be the Victoria day holiday in May either 1889 or 1891.
Note the lack of trees in the area due to the heavy logging of the area because according to the free land grant the settlers had to clear the land in order to keep it.
