Anne Braithwaite (center, with hat) rides on the Birch Island ferry on the day she was married in 1936. Formerly Anne Calder, she was sister of Edith Calder, now Edith Heywood. Anne’s new husband was Alf Braithwaite. At the time, both worked on the farm now owned by Erickson’s, just at the corner of the highway and the turnoff to the shortcut to Birch Island. Years ago they moved to North Kamloops and lived there until they each passed away in recent years.
