SUMMERLAND MUSEUM BANKS CRESCENT The name Banks Crescent was chosen to honour an active Summerland family: the Banks. Elizabeth Banks and her four adult children arrived here in 1919. Immediately, Muriel Banks began teaching Grade 1; which she did for 40 years. Her sister Olive was a nurse at Summerland’s old hospital. Violet Banks was a music teacher and their brother Henry was a carpenter and building contractor. This photograph shows Muriel on the left and Violet Banks in 1956.
