Chips for Supper

Avoiding the greatest thing on earth — chips for supper

Canada Day part 2

2 Comments

After the pancake breakfast made by hot firemen (booo at myself for not getting a pic of them), I went over to Port Moody Station Museum. Even though I have lived in the area for 4 years (and the Lower Mainland for my entire life), I had never been to this museum.

They had model trains set up just for Canada Day.

  

Is this the golden spike? The last spike in the Canadian Pacific Railway was put in Craigellachie, BC, and the next day the first train arrived in Port Moody, signifying the union of Canada.

Inside the museum there is an old office, including a table with telegraph.  You could get a certificate if you successfully relayed your name using Morse Code.

  


-…  .  -.-  -.-  ..
I did it!!

On one of the walls, they had some fur samples, including rabbit, fox, beaver, otter, and deer. Which do you think is the softest?

  
  

The top hats were all made out of beaver felt.

Currently in the museum, there is an exhibit showing how the Chinese were involved in building the railway.

  

Imagine holding that chain saw, trying to fell the trees.

Thankful for modern kitchens.

And, an old iPod. That was not portable. And could only play a few songs. Without touch screen.
