Scope and Content
Photographic postcard of the British Columbia Electric Railway Company's Burnaby Substation that was built in 1903 and put into operation to receive and distribute power from the B.C.E.R. Buntzen Lake power dam. The electric lines came across the inlet at Barnet, along the Barnet-Hastings Road to Sperling Avenue (built for this project and called Pole Line Road) and then south to this site at the corner of Griffiths and the old Central Park interurban line (later this section was called the Highland Park line). This substation was constructed to convert the alternating current being delivered from the Buntzen power plant to direct current for the operation of the tram cars operating on the Central Park interurban route. The new brick substation replaced the wood fed steam powered 1891 Powerhouse that operated south of this site, across the tracks until its closure on May 31,1905. It was demolised in the late 1920s. This brick substation originally known as the Burnaby Substation, eventually became known as the Newell Substation. The original brick building was replaced by a new structure in 1930, which was demolished in the 1960s in favour of the open field substation that continues to operate on the same site today at 7260 Griffiths Avenue.

History/Biography
Ann Eliza (Annie) was born in August of 1861. After marrying R. Croucher, Ann moved her family to British Columbia in 1907. Their daughter Rose Croucher was born in January of 1895 and studied geometrical drawing using Blair’s Canadian Drawing Series workbooks. On on February 21, 1914, Rose Croucher and James Oakes Bancroft married in Vancouver. Together they had three children; James A. in 1916 or 1917, Rosie, then George E. in August of 1927. The Bancroft family were poultry farmers throughout the early 1900s, transporting their farmed eggs from Burnaby to the Hudson’s Bay Company Vancouver using the British Columbia Electric Railway system. Rose Bancroft also served as Secretary-Treasurer of the Central Park Poultry Co-op Association in the 1920s until her husband's death in 1930 at the age of 42. In the late thirties and early forties, while James A. Bancroft was stationed in Calgary with the Royal Canadian Air Force, his younger siblings lived together with their mother and grandmother at 1963 21st Avenue in Burnaby. Young Rosie Bancroft studied French and England’s history in Social Studies in 1937 and her brother George studied the seasons in General Science II in 1942. Grandmother Ann died in 1962 at the age of 99. Her daughter Rose died three years later at the age of 76.
