Physical Description
1 photograph : b&w glass negative ; 16.4 x 21.3 cm
Scope and Content
Photograph of North Road and the Brunette Bridge, looking south into New Westminster from Burnaby. By the northern end of the bridge, there is a pit being dug with shovels. A few houses can be seen on the southwest side of the bridge. The house furthest away is identified as the William Holmes house (Burnaby's first settler to pre-empt property in Burnaby). All of the land on the right side of the road was purchased by William H. Holmes in 1860 (District Lot 1, Group 1, New Westminster District). A car is parked on the side of the road south of the bridge. The shorter ash tree south of the bridge is identified as the famous "Holmes Ash Tree" (also known as the "Moody tree").
