Object History
The Nash roadster was purchased by a private owner in British Columbia after it came out in 1929. In the late 1950s or 1960s the car was purchased from the first owner by William "Graham" Kidd (1922-1984) of Burnaby. The well loved vehicle was nicknamed "Agnes" by it's second owner Graham Kidd. Graham Kidd was the son of William Kidd Sr. (1882-1970) and Helen Kelly Kidd (1894-1977). Graham Kidd was born in Burnaby in 1922 and lived in Burnaby his whole life. Graham's father William Kidd and his mother Helen White Kelly married in North Burnaby in 1917 and moved into a home on Oxford Street. William Kidd opened a hardware store on East Hastings Street Burnaby in 1913 and operated it for twenty years before working for Burrard Brokerage in the 1930s. William and Helen had three children; William Graham Kidd, Margaret Graham "Peggy" (McLaughlin) and Ann (Mercier). In the late 1940s, Graham joined his father William Kidd working for Burrard Brokerage eventually becoming the proprietor of the business in the 1950s. Graham Kidd married Gweneth "Gwen" Anderson and lived in North Burnaby with their three children until he died in 1984. Graham Kidd loved his Nash automobile often going for Sunday drives with the convertible top down with children riding in the rumble seat. Parts for the automobile were hard to come by and the family recalls a neighbour Oscar Johnson helped to keep it in good condition. In the 1970s the Nash roadster was also refurbished and repainted with help from Graham Kidd's neighbour John Prestas. In 1984, after William Kidd died, Gwen Kidd donated the automobile to the Transportation Museum of British Columbia, Cloverdale who in turn donated it to Burnaby Village Museum in 1993.

The radiator cowling has the maker's brand stamped in the top. There is a white commercial license plate with red lettering mounted on right front of the dash, next to lamp. The vehicle has two electric front headlights and one rear light. It also has two incomplete carriage lamps screwed to the dash. There is one manual windshield wiper mounted on the vertical windshield. There is a horseshoe mounted on the right side inside of the dashboard. The "Buzz" coil box is mounted in the centre of the dash with a odometer on the left and key and meters on the right. The wheels have wood spokes and steel rims.
Object History
This 1924 Ford Model T vehicle may have arrived in Steveston around 1925 and used by a local family. The 1924 Ford Model T Depot Hack truck was built from the running gear of the original Model T Ford by Ernie Harrison. Ernie purchased the running gear of the Ford Model T around 1966 and built it from the ground up. Ernie took measurements from a "Depot Hack" that belonged to a collector in Vancouver and combed swap meets in British Columbia and Washington State in search of original car parts. Ernie belonged to the Model A and Model T Ford Club and took this truck in many parades. Around 1969, the truck was sold to a private collector before being sold to another collector in 1995. The vehicle was acquired by the Burnaby Village Museum in 1997. The Depot Hack rear body is not authentic but the original concept has been retained.

Object History
Jimmy Chow worked in TV and film as a property master for more than 42 years. A property master is responsible for building and procuring props that actors handle and use. This sometimes means making replica items that are lighter, false or make filming easier on the actor. This differs from set decoration, which uses props to create a backdrop and is less central to the action on set.
Jimmy Chow was responsible for designing, managing, and sourcing props for films such as: BFG, Warcraft: The Beginning, X-Men 2, Fantastic Four, Watchman, Tron: Legacy, Little Women, Seven Years in Tibet, Shanghai Noon, The Shipping News, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, The Changeling, Man of Steel (Superman), Snow Falling on Cedars, Legends of the Fall, And the Sea Will Tell, and Once a Thief.
He entered the film industry in 1973 working for CBC Vancouver and gained valuable experience working on the set of the television series The Beachcombers, which launched his career.
