My parents celebrated their honeymoon in Vancouver. Among the photos was this one of my dad in 1946.

Note the Thunderbird House Poles on left and right. They were carved by Charlie James in the 1900s. These poles were used to support the main bole of the longhouse. (January 1946)

In the center is a replica of the original Thunderbird House pole. It was carved in 1987 by Tony Hunt. The original pole is in a Vancouver museum. (July 2017)
