Inscriptions
A view taken from what we used to call Devil's Hill the black spot in the centre at horizon of right half is where the new water tower replaced the old which is the spot in the picture. All of this area is new occupied by the University of Waterloo and adjacent housing areas. In the centre from left to right ran a stream on whose bank the above "Retreat" (shack) was built by Carolus Little and myself and we spent many a summer night there in those early years, of 1923 to 1926.
