Last week’s photo (July 27, 2017) was from the Langley Centennial Museum. It is looking north on Johnston Townline Road; later renamed 216th Street. St. Alban’s Church is on the right [ca. 1900]. Saint Alban’s Anglican Church was constructed in 1890 on 216th Street in Milner under Bishop A.W. Sillitoe. In June 1926 it was relocated to the corner of 248th and Fraser Highway, its current location.
