After receiving a note from Marcia Braundy 2020-04-01 this description was updated. The date changed from 1979-09 to 1981. The location changed from PVI Maple Ridge to the BCIT Trades Building.
Braundy: This [photograph] was actually taken in 1981 at the BCIT Trades Building while I was working on my roof framing project in my 4th Year class in Carpentry, about to become British Columbia's 1st female Red Seal Carpenter. Honorine Loader was producing a newsletter for BCIT at the time and she wrote an article on me and had this picture taken.
At this time, April 2020, M. Braundy was on the Board of Governors for BCIT.
