Heritage Value
The Arrow Neon Sign was built in 1961 by the Neonette Sign Company of New Westminster when this property was opened as the Tomahawk Drive-in Restaurant. The restaurant was later known as Lindy's Burger and in 1990, the business was renamed Lost in the 50's Drive-in. It stands 20-foot tall and is composed of a large double-sided hollow steel panel serpentine arrow mounted on a pole supporting a lexan sign panel measuring approximately 8 feet wide by 4 feet tall. The sign was designed with three illuminated features: a round lamp at the top of the pole, a double-sided rectangular fluorescent sign panel box, and two double-sided rows of orange neon arrows that follow the large serpentine arrow. The Arrow Neon Sign remains as a rare surviving example of neon sign art in the city and is the only historic neon sign in South Burnaby. The sign has gained prominence over the years as it has been associated with this small iconic drive-in which has also been utilized as a set for film production. Additionally, the drive-in has played a prominent role in the Edmonds community as a popular setting for recent "Show and Shine" participants to park their classic cars.

Arthur Long, of the Water Rights Office of Victoria, purchased this land from neighbour Henry Ramsay, and built this beautiful Arts and Crafts styled home. The house appears to have many similarities to the neighbouring Ramsay House, which was designed by Vancouver architect R. Mackay Fripp. The house has retained its original complex gabled roof, triangular eave brackets and horizontal siding.

Heritage Value
Along with logging and sawmills, Burnaby became known as a prime agricultural area and the Burnaby Lake Neighbourhood saw the development of many vegetable and fruit farms. Growers in the Burnaby and Deer Lake districts took their produce to the tram line on Edmonds Street and shipped it to markets in New Westminster and Vancouver on a specially designed interurban freight car that was open-sided for easy loading. The car's canvas curtains which sometimes came loose and flapped like wings in the wind led people to dub it "the flying dutchman." Most Burnaby fruit and vegetable growers depended on seasonal Chinese work forces and other local Chinese farm residents to oversee operations; these workers being recruited from New Westminsters' Asian community. Besides being good farmers, Burnaby Lake's early residents fostered a strong sense of community. Both L. Claude Hill and his brother Bernard were elected to Burnaby Municipal council and Bernard was the one who knocked on doors to find enough children to meet the qualifications for establishing a school in the district.

Residential building.
Heritage Value
This house was built for Henry Ramsay and his wife, Elsa Kirby (née Burnett), who were married at Holy Trinity Cathedral in New Westminster in 1910. Henry was a real estate agent, originally from Newcastle-on-Tyne, England. Beautifully designed in the Arts and Crafts style, it follows the ideals of the movement in the use of native materials. The wooden construction includes timber porch and roof brackets. The roofline is of a notably low pitch. English-born architect Robert Mackay Fripp (1858-1917) had a varied career working at various times in England, New Zealand and Los Angeles. Fripp found the opportunity in British Columbia to promote his passion for British Arts and Crafts aesthetics through a series of residential and institutional commissions. The Ramsay Residence was built at the height of the Arts and Crafts movement, and Fripp’s output during this period was prolific; his residential designs ranged from modest California bungalows to stately Tudor Revival homes in Shaughnessy, Point Grey and Kerrisdale. This elegant house was built by contractor C.G. Bowden.

The Burnaby School Inspector's report of 1955 estimated that by 1960, the total enrolment in Burnaby would go up by over 8000 pupils. As a result, new schools needed to be built to manage this increase, Lakeview being only one of many. Lakeview opened in 1958 with 193 students. Additions to the school were made in 1965 and 1969.

Like many other areas of the City, the Lakeview-Mayfield Neighbourhood was subdivided during the 1950s post-war building boom. Pockets of newer homes were built in the 1970s, and the neighbourhood retained its character as a primarily residential area. The neighbourhood is bordered to the east by Robert Burnaby Park.
