Administration Buildings
Large L shaped building on right, towards back of picture, with 3 dormers facing the camera, was The Granby Hotel, built in 1917.
Just to the right of the hotel, and behind it, I think? was the Anyox School, looks white in picture.
Oct 1917 Public Works Dept. were asking for tenders, for an extension to the School. One map says this, and building next to it on the right, was the Catholic Church.
Tennis courts are visible here as well in front of Hotel.

Hotel was 45 rooms, Steam heat, Hot and cold running water, and telephones in every room.
