When The Shoreline Was The Roadside

This photo of the main street of Campbell River in the 1950’s reveals the aftermath of a sou’easter blowing through, typical for Campbell River in the late fall, winter and spring.  You can see the driftwood being thrown up onto the roadway in front of the Van Isle Theatre.  These were the days when the roadway was also the shoreline.  A farm tractor with a push blade was used to push the logs to the side.
