In 1891 Siwash Flat looked a little different than it does now. The house in the centre of the photo had just been moved from the Jones Flat area to the foot of Giant’s Head, where it still stands today (12409 Victoria Rd. S.) The couple standing beside the fence is Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd-Jones. They would probably be amazed by the sight of present day Summerland occupying their peaceful fields. Things can change substantially in a short 124 years.
