Notes
Title based on caption of photograph
Accompanying note prepared by Burnaby Village Museum reads: "The Huntresses - c. 1910 / Deer, bear and game birds abounded in Burnaby forests until civilization scared them out. These animals could well have been bagged in Burnaby up until the 1920's but it is not likely that the young ladies in the picture had anything to do with the hunt except to provide the photographer with 'live' models."

Physical Description
1 photograph : b&w ; 7.1 x 10.3 cm
Scope and Content
Photograph of a woman and a girl standing by a chickenwire fence, looking at the geese and chicks. Vegetable gardens and a log building can be seen as well. According to the note in the accession file, the woman is Mrs. Sylvia Cowan, the second wife of Mr. James Cowan since they were married in 1922, and the girl is one of Mr. Cowan's two daughters from his first marriage. The property depicted in the photograph was at 2930 Gilpin Street (later renumbered 5926 Gilpin Street), where Mr. Cowan purchased two acres of land to build a home in 1919. After settling in Burnaby in 1923 at that property, Mr. Cowan became active in serving the community, eventually earning the honour of having a memorial hall named after him, which later changed to the James Cowan Theatre. An annotation on the back of the photo reads: "2930 Gilpin in 1923/24 / 2 acres, vegetable gardens, chickens, a cow, geese / more info in files / Cowan Property." Stamped on the back of the photo: "0110."
