Aerial Photo of Terrace BC

Aerial of Terrace ca mid 1950's
Tried my best to identify roads and buildings below
Hard to spot roads on a 2D picture,
think I have them pretty close now

Key to numbers above-
1- Apsley St.
2- Clinton St
3- Atwood St
4- Kalum St
5- Terrace Legion Branch 13
6- Part of Army Barracks, Offices etc, still exists as Rec Center for Twin River Estates
7- Army barracks etc, now Twin River Estates Senior Development
When I came here it was Columbia Cellulose Co. Logging Offices.
8- Army Barracks, now Terrace Curling Club (see below)
9- Sande Overpass today
10- Servicemen Tent City here, now River Park, Baseball diamond, still in use today.
11- Old Power Station, identified by Pierre Le Ross
12- Fuel Depots, all gone now
13- Grand Trunk Railroad, later CNR
14- Old Community Hall, burnt down, now George Little Park Bandstand
15- Old Quonset building, Chances Casino near here now
16- Lakelse Ave. (part of Highway 16 at that time, from old Bridge)
16.- 2 16's, I can't count I guess?, Sleeping Beauty Mountain, a Local Landmark
17- Highway 16 to Prince Rupert
18- Terrace Hotel, burnt down, rebuilt now Terrace Inn, Best Western Inn
19- Philbert Hotel, later Skeena Hotel, burnt down a few years ago
20- Old Terrace Transmission building when I came here.
Originally an Army building from WWII.
21- Park Ave, leading up to Birch Ave on the Bench
22- Greig Ave
23- Park Ave
24-Terrace City Hall
25- (not marked on picture) missed Lazelle Ave between Lakelse (16) and Park (23)

If the photo panned down a bit more,
we would see "The Motel", on Marsh Crescent,
Motel, Trailer Park complex, I lived in at one time, early 1970's.
This was the original location of George Little's Homestead.

I have had requests for pictures of Army Barracks etc.
This shows them all except for the Drill Hall that burnt down,
BC Tel had on Birch Ave,
on extreme right front of picture.
Now all Subdivided up there.

Photo courtesy friend Mel Anderson, here in Terrace, with thanks.

Info below added from Maggie Baxter, Terrace, Apr 2013
re #8 on photo above, with thanks!

"sorry forgot this bit of info - the army buildings on the east end of town
(where curling rink now is) were used as a school beginning in 1948.
It was named
Riverside Elementary School and at least 2 of the 3 buildings
were in continual use until December 1966. 
The 1966 -67 classes started the New Year at E.T. Kenney School on Loen Avenue. 
 Riverside was opened for one more school year 1968-1969
 for the Grade 8 students of Terrace. 
There was no room at Skeena Secondary School and Caledonia Secondary
 had not yet been completed so the Gr 8 classes were housed at Riverside.
 That was the last year it was used as a public school.

  I am told that when the Catholic School
burned to the ground in the summer of 196??
 their students were housed in Riverside while their new school was built. 
 The school was torn down in the late 70's and all that lovely straight grain wood
 was sold throughout the community
where it was re-cycled  into sheds, greenhouse and wharves."

I am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives, etc.
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it takes me.
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "Link" to my page from Facebook, Blogs, etc.
Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "Link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and proper way to do it!
