Photograph of a paved street lined on both sides with curbs and electric poles. There appears to be a car in the distance, as well as an idustrial building on the right-hand side of the road. An earlier catalogue record from 1988 conjectures that the street is Kingsway, probably in Burnaby, between Sperling Avenue and Royal Oak, looking South, and that the building is possibly the Macadam making plant for the company which paved Kingsway.

An annotation on the back of one of the photos reads, "The foreground farm property stood at the corner of Sperling Avenue (formerly known as the Pole Line Road) and Buckingham.
