Title based on contents of photograph
The photographs in the accession HV976.143 are thought to be by the Stride studio, as the donor indicated in her letter that the Stride family were personal friends of her great-aunt and her husband, who resided in Edmonds. She wrote that she received a picture of the New Westminster or Burnaby May Day celebrations each year.
