Photo 1294: Dairy cattle walk across land flooded during 1948 flood. Bethell farm diary cows were being moved temporarily to higher ground at a neighbour’s house during the 1948 flood. Frank & Ada owned the Bethell Farm on White Road in West Langley (White Road ran between 200th and 208th Streets; just north of the railway tracks - approximately where 102B Avenue is). Frank and Ada were married January 21, 1919 and they moved to the farm sometime after they were married. The couple had four children; three girls (including Kay and Joan) and one boy; Bob. The flood of 1948 refers to the large; Fraser River flood. (Langley Centennial Museum photo)
