Look both ways

A passer-by seems oblivious to some of the characters from Chemainus’ past

A passer-by seems oblivious to some of the characters from Chemainus’ past, who were busily engaged longshoring in the era of sailing ships and hand carts.  The mural, on Legion Street and Willow is just round the corner from the Utopia Bakery and Café, so perhaps a fresh slice of baguette and a cup of coffee were on our contemporary stroller’s mind; but what were the longshoremen of a century ago thinking, looking out into a future they could not have imagined.
