The Deep Cove Heritage Society collects photos, stories and films covering the whole of the Seymour area of North Vancouver. We would love to include your memories in our archives. The group is currently beginning to get its nearly 5,000 photos online to share.
The North Shore News has reported that the little blue cabin is on the move, it was the last of the old squatters’ cabins at Cates Park.

This newsletter features a story by (still reigning Princess?) Wendy Bullen Stephenson about the 1957 May Day. In fact the whole issue looks at Deep Cove May Days from 1947 to 1957; we have photos of most of the May Queens; if you have any photos you can loan us to scan into our archives we would appreciate it.
