Last week’s photo (July 13, 2017) was taken around 1913. It was the Langley display at the Provincial Agricultural Fair in New Westminster. The back of the photo reads “Geo Simpson put this up. Kennie helped.”

Winner Jason Inglis suggested: “Eventually, it became clear the Langley Sears might be having problems.”
