Philip Sawkins Collection -- Sitka Spruce Lumber Co., Picnic in Sechelt, 1942, Page 1

Mr. Sawkins' father was employed by the Sitka Spruce Lumber Co. Ltd. located at False Creek in Vancouver. On July 4, 1942 the employees' annual picnic was held in Sechlet at the Union Steamship Estates picnic ground on the west side of Wharf Avenue between Dolphin and Cowrie streets. Mr. Sawkins remembers traveling annually on Union Steamship vessels to the company's picnics in various spots, one being up Indian Arm and another at Sechelt. Mr. Sawkins is in the front row on the right hand side, a small boy in a white shirt and striped trousers. He donated this picture on behalf of his mother Bernice Sawkins.
