Notes
Typewritten note on verso of postcard reads: "AERIAL VIEW/ 'The Fairhaven', Burnaby BC / United Church Homes for Senior Citizens / 4341 Rumble St., Burnaby, BC"
Handwritten note on verso of postcard reads: ""The road in the foreground is Rumble Street. The long road to the right is Sussex Avenue. The road, going up, on the left, barely visible is McKay Avenue = lower corner. Behind Fair Haven is the future David Gary Park cleared in the late 1950's - then more trees were felled in October 1962 with Hurricane Freda (blown over, uprooted trees) that left the park as it is today in 1993. The top row of little (5) white cottages were moved from the N.W. corner of Willingdon and Kingsway where Old Orchard Mall is now - they were part of Old Orchard Auto Villas, the first Fair Havens. Note: All cottages on right side of Lodge have been moved to Vancouver Island in 1991 for Motel units - by barge."
