Deadman's Island [showing squatters' houses]

Photograph is accompanied by a label reading: "This is the famous Dead Man's Island. Island or Peninsula? Off Stanley Park. This picture shows the shacks of the squatters. It was the intention to build a sawmill on this site, but the citizens objected. Trees were cut down and the residents notified to vacate. Nothing became of the granting of a lease over the island - Timms Photo."

Cedar walk, Stanley Park, Vancouver, B.C.

Attached label reads: "Thirty-seven years ago in Stanley Park. Along the trail to 3rd Beach, about 150 feet west of the clump of Fir trees called the Seven Sisters. This is the remains of an Indian dug-out canoe that was abandoned on account of "dry rot" in the log. What is left of it is covered with dense green moss. The newly chopped chips were lying about when I made the above photograph. Philip Timms."
