Mystical City of the Fraser

April 17, 2015





A visionary scene of New Westminster  – a portion of an SJ Thompson view from Brownsville taken between 1892 and 1898.

At the extreme right is the YMCA building on Columbia Street at Church Street, present location of the Bank of Montreal. 

On the Fraser River, right to left: a tall-masted sailing ship, the South Westminster ferry Surrey, Lytton Square, steamboats, Brackman & Ker wharf and  warehouses.
