Notes
Title based on contents of photograph
Newspaper clipping attached to verso of photograph reads: "UBC students, from left, Eric Sorensen, Nick Moldovan and Bill Buckler, wait for Mayor Tom Constable to protest expropriation."
Lillian Mann was a war widow who fought with the courts to maintain ownership of her land. After much controversy, City of Burnaby eventually successfully expropriated the land, and converted it into a parking lot for the Cameron Library and Recreation Complex.
