History/Biography
Vera Jackson’s parents Harold Joseph Jackson and Florence Colocott married in 1925 and bought a brown wooden shingled house at 3507 Booth Avenue, Burnaby in 1926. Vera Rose Jackson was born at Mrs. Scott’s private hospital on Kingsway near Central Park December 4, 1927. Her brother Ronald Harold Jackson was born June 21, 1929. In 1934, the family moved to 2706 Cassie Avenue (later renumbered 6457). Vera attended Miss Edith Hall’s Kindergarten on Grange Street until she was old enough to enter Kingsway West as a grade one student. The family were members of the West Burnaby United Church and Vera and her brother Ron both went to Sunday school in the old Church basement. Vera attended Burnaby South High School where she met her future husband, Fred Pel. In 1944, Vera earned a job at the Royal Bank in Burnaby. Besides the manager and the accountant, the entire staff at the branch were young girls fresh out of school - the men having left to serve during the war. She worked at the Royal Bank from 1944 until 1952. During her time as clerk, she witnessed two armed robberies; one in May of 1946 and the other in January of 1948.

Notes
Typewritten note on verso of postcard reads: "AERIAL VIEW/ 'The Fairhaven', Burnaby BC / United Church Homes for Senior Citizens / 4341 Rumble St., Burnaby, BC"
Handwritten note on verso of postcard reads: ""The road in the foreground is Rumble Street. The long road to the right is Sussex Avenue. The road, going up, on the left, barely visible is McKay Avenue = lower corner. Behind Fair Haven is the future David Gary Park cleared in the late 1950's - then more trees were felled in October 1962 with Hurricane Freda (blown over, uprooted trees) that left the park as it is today in 1993. The top row of little (5) white cottages were moved from the N.W. corner of Willingdon and Kingsway where Old Orchard Mall is now - they were part of Old Orchard Auto Villas, the first Fair Havens. Note: All cottages on right side of Lodge have been moved to Vancouver Island in 1991 for Motel units - by barge."
Printed on verso of postcard: "Traveltime product, made in Vancouver, Canada, by Grant-Mann Lithographers Ltd."
