Mill Street in 1948 by Mike Svob

“Mill Street in 1948” is an impressionistic wave of transparent colour which washes gently over the eye of the viewer. The first building on the left of old Mill Street was used as a Post Office until 1927. That year, street lights made their first appearance in Chemainus, with power provided by the V.L. & M. Company. Beyond the Post Office, towards the water, stood the sawmill superintendent’s office. Also depicted in the mural is a time clock shelter to the right of the employee parking area. Gordon Wharf and the government wharf recede into the background of Chemainus Harbour.
