Scope and Content
Photograph of Douglas Road as dirt road with wagon wheel tracks left in the mud. There are fences along the sides of the road, and trees and brush on both sides of the fences. The photograph includes a caption that reads: "Douglas Road, 1895. Deviation from old road, seen on right, at then, Haszard Hill, now Rayside Ave, looking eastward up the hill." An accompanying note prepared by BVM reads: "Referred to by Colonel R. C. Moody as 'Douglas Street Road' (also known as Douglas Street Wagon Road) when he proposed this link between New Westminster and Burrard Inlet. In Feb. 1861, John Murray and Daniel Kelso took a contract with the government to make a wagon road of four and one half miles. Their road reached the neighbourhood of Deer Lake and used part of the 10 miles of trail by Messrs. Brouse and Ross the year before. Messrs. Sparrow and McDonald also contracted to 'make a trail along an extension of Douglas Street to enable settlers to reach that desirable section of the country around Burnaby Lake.' All these efforts amounted to little more than rough trails. In 1864, however, John Thomas Scott was awarded a contract to put a proper Douglas Street Road from New Westminster to Burrard Inlet, a distance estimated at nine miles. His tender was $1800 a mile. The winter turned out to be severe and the work did not go well. Instead of estimated $14700 total cost of the work amounted to $26574. Scott lost his house in satisfying his creditors. Douglas Road later became Grandview-Douglas Highway. Today, part of it from New Westminster to Douglas Road is known as Canada Way."

The car license plate reads, "BC/ 2720/ 1913." Following the car is a horse pulling a wagon. Further north, a small street car can be seen, probably moving southward. According to the 1988 catalogue record, the two houses on the left are separated by Hubert Avenue. The larger house on the left is the home of of Mr. and Mrs. John McNiven, now demolished. The smaller house in the distance, being constructed, is the Britton family home.
