This historic work by John depicts the various activities on the Fraser River at New Westminster, circa 1870. On the hillside, logging of the giant trees was in progress and as the trees were felled and the land cleared, the new city began to emerge. One of the early settlers was Captain William Irving who operated the sternwheelers “Reliance” and “Onward”. His home (centre left) was built between 1862 and 1864 and soon became a landmark. It was brought in 1950 b the City of New Westminster and is operated as the Irving House Historic Centre/New Westminster Museum today.
