Flowers, horses, painting Pattullo Bridge

Item is an amateur film which captures flowers, trees, and foliage, with the British Columbia Parliament buildings at times visible in the background; and women riding horses and playing with a dog. The latter half of the film captures labourers painting the Pattullo Bridge (New Westminster, B.C.) while hoisted on pulleys or simply free climbing. The workers, covered with paint themselves, pose together at the end of the film.

Horse shows - 1947 to 1950

Item is a film consisting of several amateur films that have been spliced together. The film documents at least eight different horse shows, races and rodeos. Some shows are identifiable, such as the Grand Horse Show & Gymkhana at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver and the Big-Horse Show at Queen's Park Stadium in New Westminster. The film includes footage of an indoor rodeo (possibly at the PNE) and numerous other unidentified shows at unknown racetracks and other locations, possibly in the Fraser Valley. Also included is footage of a farm and people grooming and riding horses.

New Westminster - bridges

Item is an amateur film which captures shots of the New Westminster Bridge (also known as the Frasier River Swing Bridge) and the Pattullo Bridge. In the film, the swing mechanism of the New Westminster Bridge is shown as ships pass through, and the span then returns to allow the waiting vehicle traffic to pass. Following shots capture a man climbing on the underside of the through arch Pattullo Bridge.
