Film also documents locations and events in Vancouver, including the exterior and interior of Wood’s Jewellery Store (Arthur Wood & Co., 2511 Main Street), family gatherings at a house, possibly the Wood family home at 1656 Robson Street, and a troop of cavalry riding in dress uniforms. The stock date years of the film are in the following order: 1926, 1931, 1929, 1931 and 1932.
