Scope and Content
Photograph of the unveiling the First World War memorial fountain at the Municipal Hall, Kingsway and Edmonds Street, on June 17, 1923. It was dedicated to Municipal employees who died in the War. Engraved at the top of the memorial is "[In memory?] of our fellow workers who fell in the war, 1914-1918 / Erected by the Civic Employees Union - Burnaby - 1923." At the right is Dora Wilcox, daughter of Ernest Wilcox who was killed on the Somme in 1916. She unveiled the fountain. Uniformed boys, possibly Boy Scouts, and a bugler are also pictured. In 1974, this memorial was relocated from its original setting to the site of the Burnaby Village Museum on Deer Lake Avenue.
