This portrait of some of the Columbia Valleys early residents shows five members of Windermeres fledgling community, date unknown. Pictured, left to right, back row: Charles Crook, unknown, Bob Chisholm, unknown. Front row: Clause Holly. The community of Windermere first started coming to prominence locally during the 1880s, when the valleys first commercial buildings were constructed there, beginning in 1883. The Whitehouse Pub and the old RCMP barracks are two such examples that are still standing to this day. Photo courtesy of Ray Crook
