In this home I found these, 1969 1-1320 scale topographic maps, which are not exactly a pot of gold but a good find.

    Scott, fantastic that you shared this map.
    BC Parks has some interest in siting the old Monk farmhouse at Ruckle, but the manager needs to convince his higher-ups that it would be a fitting addition.
    I’m preparing an illustrated argument. The old land-survey grid on this map is useful.
    Besides, Don and I just love old maps. This one’s a treasure.

    • Hi Brenda yes they are nice maps I did not get to keep the hard copies and only have these photos. If we had found the gold perhaps I might not have shared it. That would be a good location for the Monk farmhouse or perhaps on a CRD park.
