Object History
The donation relates to the Robert and Annie Keig family and their daughter Margery Vera (known as Vera) Robert Keig was a finish carpenter and jointer. The family lived in West Burnaby on Rupert St. from approximately 1920 to late 1930's. Robert worked replacing the roof on the Hotel Vancouver during the 1930's. Robert moved to Powell River to work in the 1940's but the family retained the house in Burnaby. The artifacts were made by Robert or purchased as gifts for Vera when she was about 5 / 6 years old. She was a sickly child. The tools were used by Robert in his trade. There are a copies of Vera's birth registration and what was intended to be her memorial service in the accession file.
