BC FARM MUSEUM

Story and Photos by

LEE A. WOOD

(Outside front of BC Farm Machinery Museum.)

If you are looking for something to do on a rainy afternoon, or morning, step inside where it is dry.

Just a short drive from downtown Vancouver this museum will bring back, or create, memories of a way of life, gone but still present.

Originally called the Farm Machinery Museum it is now know as the Farm Museum.

It is so much more than machinery.

It encompasses all the gamuts of a farmer's lifestyle.

2 or maybe 3, I got lost, large buildings, housing, though I was never a farmer, many objects that brought back memories of visiting, or working on, farms.

Ever wonder why truckers call trucks made by International - Cornbinders.

Well, in here you will see an original International cornbinder, a machine that was made to harvest corn.

International trucks now display a logo that says Navistar.

They are still, to us old time truckers, Cornbinders.

I was amazed to see how many other small brands of machines now carry the International Harvester brand.

Open daily from `10 AM to 4:30 PM or phone (604) 888-2273 to be sure.
