Road trip following Rhodes in BC.

Sandra Dietz, has come all the way from Ilkey, Yorkshire, England to BC to do research on Fairview and other early mining sites. Sandra sat down with many historical buffs and gave a very informative talk Wednesday afternoon at the Museum!

Sandra and her sister Jane, are following the routes of  early prospectors and investors like Cecil Rhodes, the rich diamond mine magnet from Africa, who was in our little valley in the late 1890’s looking for gold up at Fairview mines.

Sandra is a great story teller and I found her knowledge of the  history of our hood really fascinating. I am looking forward to the book she will write from this . . .Rhodes trip . . sorry had to say that!

I’m thinking we should invite her back for a book signing!
