Film footage created by Harry Pride documenting the move of BC Electric Interurban Tram 1223 from Royal Oak warehouse (6857 Royal Oak Avenue) to the Burnaby Village Museum (6501 Deer Lake Avenue). Restoration of the tram was undertaken by the "Friends of Interurban 1223" between 2001 and 2007 at the Royal Oak warehouse before being moved to the newly built tram barn at Burnaby Village Museum. The top portion of the tram and two tram trucks were loaded onto flatbeds and early Friday February 16, 2007 the tram was moved to the museum arriving just before 5 am. Members of the Friends of Interurbran 1223 along with Burnaby Village Museum staff gathered at the museum in anticipation of it being moved to its final destination. A 200-ton crane and a crew from Nikel Brothers house movers hoisted the Interurban 1223 into position before it was winched inside the tram barn.

Scope and Content
Film, “Our Heritage A Lesson for the Future” is a Burnaby Heritage Advisory Centennial Project that was funded by the City of Burnaby. Film opens with the logo “Burnaby 1892 / 1992 / Centennial” followed by the title "Our Heritage A Lesson for the Future". Video synopsis reads: "A school field trip to BVM provides some unexpected events and new meaning to the word "Heritage" for Sarah. Interested in the future but bored with the past, she is catapulted "back to the future" when Gordy Haddon magically transports her back to his life in Burnaby in 1922. Using the museum facilities, old movie footage, and a video photo album, Sarah learns many things about Burnaby's past 100 years, and relates them to scenes, objects and place names which exist today. Turning the tables, Sarah then transports Gordy into her Burnaby of the 1990s, where he is agog and sometimes a little scared by the changes which have occurred. Skytrain, the Metrotown, shopping complex, video cameras, and even a modern escalator seem to be incredible developments. With a new understanding of heritage, a happy and excited Sarah leaves Burnaby village Museum with a real appreciation of her surroundings and the role of history in her past and future.”

Scope and Content
Recording is of an interview with Annie Boulanger, conducted by Rod Fowler. Annie Boulanger was one of eleven participants interviewed as part of the SFU/Burnaby Centennial Committee's oral history series titled, "Voices of Burnaby". The interview is mainly about Annie Boulanger’s volunteer community work in Burnaby, including initiating the teaching of french and gymnastics at Seaforth School where her children attended, doing historical research and oral histories for Burnaby Heritage Village and the SFU Archives, becoming a long term member of the Burnaby Writers’ Club, being a member and President of Burnaby Arts Council, and member of the Parks Board's Centre for the Performing Arts Committee (1987). The interview focuses attention on the Arts Council’s financial difficulties between 1985 and 1990, and the need for a comprehensive approach to supporting the arts through a municipal arts policy. Annie Boulanger also talks about her parents’ history, their home on Napier Street and her later home on Government Road, her education and teaching career, and her arts journalism. To view “Narrow By” terms for each track expand this description and see “Notes”.
Biographical Notes
Annie Urbanovits Boulanger’s parents emigrated from Hungary to Toronto, Louis in 1925 and Irene in 1930, where they married. Louis and Irene Boulanger moved to Vancouver where Louis worked in the Vancouver Shipyards during WWII and then for Nichols Chemical Company in Barnet for 15 years. While the Urbanovits family lived in Cloverdale, Louis commuted to Kask’s Camp in Barnet, until they moved to Burnaby in 1951 to an old farm purchased on Napier Street. Between 1951 and 1956 Annie completed her BA degree, majoring in chemistry and english with a minor in physical education, and obtained her teaching diploma at UBC. She taught for 4 years in various locations in BC before marrying and moving to Manitoba and Ottawa. She and her husband and five children (two more children to come later) returned to Burnaby in 1964 to a home on Government Street to be close to family. Annie Boulanger became involved in the community first through her children’s school, initiating and teaching french classes in Seaforth School in 1969, and supporting the development of gymnastics in school and as a municipal program. Her interest in Archives lead to doing oral histories for John Adams, curator of Heritage Village [Burnaby Heritage Village], and for SFU Archives. She became a long time member of the Burnaby Writers’ Club in the 1970s, taking a course in writing non-fiction from Chris Potter. In 1983 Annie Boulanger joined the Burnaby Arts Council, becoming President in 1985. She was involved in lobbying the municipality for better monetary support and facilities for the arts and for the creation of a Municipal Arts Policy. She has continued to promote the arts in Burnaby through her appointment to Burnaby’s Visual Arts Advisory Board in 1997, her arts journalism, writing regular book and theatre reviews for the local newspaper, and other activities. She was a member of the Burnaby Centennial Committee and was one of the editors of the book “Burnaby Centennial Anthology”.
