Scope and Content
Photographic postcard looking over the Century Gardens, towards the Ceperley House in Deer Lake. The caption on the reverse of the postcard reads: "Century Gardens was Burnaby's Centennial Project commemorating Canada's 100th birthday. The Corporation bought this mansion and its spacious grounds located on the north shore of Deer Lake. The building was restored and now operates as Burnaby's new Art Centre. The grounds were relandscaped and over 2000 rhododendrons, Burnaby's official flower, were planted to promote the numerous named varieties which can be grown in the lower mainland."
