Helping modern folk understand the lives of people in this community in decades past is the aim of the annual Old and New Day.
The BC Farm Machinery Museum in Fort Langley rounds out its season with the event on the Labour Day holiday Monday.
On display will be â€œold & newâ€ tractors, trucks, phones, cameras, books, lamps and many other comparisons.
The event is a chance for people to see how common devices and practices have changed over the past century.
The museum will have many of its small and large engines running, and the Antique Small Engine Club will be on site with its display of working engines. There will also be heritage equipment demonstrated including a tomato sorter and egg grading.
People can try making rope using the museumâ€™s rope maker.
Fresh corn on the cob will be cooked up for people to enjoy and the Tim Hortons Community Cruiser will be on site, providing free goodies. Itâ€™s there 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Old and New Day runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the museum at 9193 King St. Admission that day is by donation to this museum run entirely by volunteers who look after B.C.â€™s largest collection of pioneer items. For more information, call the museum at 604-888-2273 or check out bcfma.com.
