Series
Scope and Content
Series consists of records created during the establishment and maintenance of Sister-City relationships between Burnaby and the cities of Kushiro (Japan), Loughborough (England), El Zapotal (El Salvador), Mesa (Arizona), Gatineau (Quebec), Hwaseong (Korea), Zhongshan City (P.R. China). Records include: reports, correspondence, photographs and photograph albums, memoranda, newspaper clippings, speeches, certificates, itineraries, presentation material, invitations, agendas, and minutes. The sister city movement gained momentum in North America after the Second World War with a goal to encourage cooperation between international communities. Burnaby became a part of that movement in the hopes that sister city relationships would create meaningful industrial, economic, educational, and cultural ties between Burnaby citizens and those of other countries. Burnaby’s first sister city was Kushiro, Japan. The formal agreement for the establishment of a sister city relationship between the two communities was signed on September 9, 1965. Following this twinning, the two cities have enjoyed numerous exchanges and visits, the records of which are contained within this series. While the sister city status between Burnaby and Kushiro has endured for over three decades, Burnaby has also maintained shorter-lived relationships with Loughborough, England and El Zapotal, El Salvador. The 1986 twinning with Loughborough was undertaken to recognize the importance of that city to the history of Burnaby in that Loughborough was the ancestral home of Burnaby’s namesake, Robert Burnaby. The twinning between Burnaby and El Zapotal came after Mayor Copeland visited El Salvador in the early 1990s and returned with a desire to see the citizens of Burnaby assist in the rebuilding of that community after a 12-year civil war was brought to an end in 1992. In 1998, Burnaby entered into two North American Sister City relationships with Mesa, Arizona and Gatineau, Quebec, and in 2010, it formulated a sister city agreement with Hwaseong, Korea. In 2011, a further agreement was signed with Zhongshan, China which expanded a previous “friendship” agreement into a Sister City relationship. Series also consists of records related to Friendship Agreements with Taichung (Taiwan China), Dongcheng District (formerly Chongwen District) of Beijing (P.R. China), Dongli District of Tianjin, Changshu (P.R. China), and Kunming, Yunnan Province (P.R. China); as well as Memorandums of Understanding with a number of other cities.

Description
Dress, c.1913-1914. Cream china silk skirt, silk chiffon sleeves, white cotton lawn bodice, ivory lace trim. High directoire waistline, long sleeves, full length skirt. The neckline is a boat neck, trimmed with a small band of ivory lace with an abstract design. The bodice of white lawn is unshaped except for a dart under each bust, and there is also a tuck near the waist. Each sleeve attaches onto the bodice side fronts, and the bodice is hemmed within. The chiffon sleeves extend in a kimono cut to a gathered wrist with a china silk cuff attached by chain stitch embroidery. It closes with two snaps. The china silk skirt attaches at a high waist. It has gathers all around except for the centre front. Just past the knee, it has three large tucks that go around the circumference of the skirt and a fourth that is actually a hem. The dress has snap closures up the centre back, from the neckline to just past the hips.

Description
Spittoon or cuspidor. Blue enamel with white interior. Enamel is worn around the top opening.
Object History
This item originates from the Chinese Herbalist Store "Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co.", Victoria B.C. which is now housed at Burnaby Village Museum. After China became a Communist state in 1949, the spittoon became much more prevalent: spittoons were placed at every conceivable public place, and were commonplace in homes as well. The mass introduction of spittoons was no doubt a public hygiene initiative, motivated by a desire to curtail the once common Chinese practice of spitting onto the floor. The spittoons used in China were typically made of white porcelain, sometimes with traditional Chinese art painted onto the exterior. The fact that there was a spittoon as part of the Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee & Co. Herbalist shop when they closed in the 1970s, may reflect that the practice of the people in 1970s Victoria was similar to those in China.
