HAPPY 150th BIRTHDAY B.C.
Douglas Day 2008 at Ft. Langley
This is the birthday cake given out at the Ft. Langley Community Library. I sneaked a peek, while everybody else was having the cupcakes following the opening of Spirit Square. – photo Todd Wong
All proceeds of the book sales went to Friends of Fort Langley National Historic Site. I've known Jean for a number of years, she is one of BC's most prolific authors of history. It's always great to see her. Yes, I finally bought a copy of the book, British Columbia: Spirit of the People, published by Howard White's Harbour Publishing. It's a beautiful coffee table book, filled with incredible pictures and stories.
Lisa is part of the Royal Engineers. I first met her when they took part in the ill-fated SeaVancouver Festival in 2005. She tells fascinating stories about Fort Langley's history which includes her own ancestors. Check out the webpage
I really liked this picture. It was evening, the concert was going, the stars were out. You can see the old style Union Jack flag on top of the flag pole, The banner tells the event for Douglas Day and BC 150 Celebrations. You can see the Big House behind the banner and the flag. – photo Todd Wong
