Photographic postcard of Rainbow Falls at Harrison Hot Springs. The postcard was sent to Winnie Westhead (perhaps Mrs. Winifred Whiteford before marriage?) in Buena Vista, Burnaby, from Mrs Nine or Nive in Harrison Hot Springs. The postcard was mailed with two one-cent stamps and postmarked "Harrison Hot Springs, B.C. / Jul. 25 / 36." The note on the back of the postcard reads: "Dear Winnie, you will see we got away. Very sorry I could not get down had so much-to-do. Hope things are all right with you by this time - give my regards to Mother. Yours, Mrs. Nine [or Nive]." On the back of the postcard is printed: "Rainbow Falls, Harrison Hot Springs, B.C. Canada."
