Brian Blackwell Collection, Holy Family Church, Page 1

Mr. Brian Blackwell and family came to Sechelt in the early 1970s when The Trail Bay Mall was developed. He ran the bakery in Clayton's Heritage Market for thirty-eight years and his wife Sylvia was the expert cake decorator. Over the past thirty years he has recorded on slides and photographs the construction and development of various buildings and structures and also their destruction in and around Sechelt. This is a valuable record of the later growth of Sechelt and District.
