This is the Queensborough area of New Westminster from 1950. To help you get your bearings, the photo was taken from the Queensborough side looking North-West back towards New Westminster. Ten years after this photo, the saw mills were replaced by the Queensborough Bridge.
This is New Westminster overlooking Poplar Island and the site of the Scott Paper mill. In 1946, when this picture was taken, it was still called the Alaska Pine Company. You can also make out 6th Ave and 12th street.
