More on Maxwell Smith

In January, I wrote of the anniversary of the first meeting of the Grandview Ratepayers Association.  Since then I have received correspondence from our friend Jim Wolf of New Westminster.  He has sent the following image, probably taken in 1911, of Maxwell Smith, the Ratepayers’ first President.

Jim writes that Maxwell Smith was also a major figure in the development of the Central Park District in Burnaby. In fact, Smith Avenue is named for him.

Excellent new information.  Thanks, Jim!
