….interurban station New Westminster

I can not tell you just how excited i was when this video crossed my path, for i live just up the hill from where all this activity once took place. The Interurban Station has gone threw many chances since this footage, in 2008 it was restored and is now the new home of the Salvation Army  for selling used goods.

In case you are wondering where New Westminster is? It is found in the lower main land, the lower south west corner of British Columbia, Canada if you look on the map.

Camping 1955

This is the trailer we had for many years of weekend and weeklong camping trips. As mentioned in the previous photo, my aunt and uncle had the same trailer and we often met at some campground or national park.
A couple of years later, Dad got a newer (’56) Buick that had the same 2-tone design as the trailer and had the trailer painted to match the car. It was a sight to behold. Then, in 1961, my parents sold the trailer so we could get new carpets in the bedrooms. An odd trade-up….(candyruth)

candyruth… this is such a great photo.. so classic… i am thrilled that you have shared it with us… thank you… it brings back a lot of memories… tiandra..

Mom & Dad at Disneyland (1956)

Mom & Dad at Disneyland (1956), originally uploaded by candyruth.

This was within the first year Disneyland opened and boy were we all excited! We lived only about 25 miles away, and it was the favorite place to go for birthdays (my sister and I could each bring one friend for such occasions) and to take visiting relatives. It’s still one of my favorites!… (candyruth)

Wow candyruth… this is such a wondeful vintage photo.. clicked in the first year Disneyland opened up.. wow… so very interesting i must say… thank you candyruth for sharing… tiandra…

Thank you A Wallis for sharing this gem with us… your entire photo-stream is so very interesting… love the back end click of this Plymouth… especially since it is clicked in Newfoundland.. this adds an even greater intrigue for me… Newfoundland… although i have only been there one time.. holds a charm in my mind which is almost sacred… its hard to explain… but i think it has to do with how gentle the people of the land are.. the great hospitality extended one who takes time to visit the rock….

again… thank you for sharing… tiandra…

Thank you meagain for sharing this treasure with us.. tiandra…
