Locally known as the "H-Tree" with the
"Railway Station" in the background.


The train station has since been moved to
the Old Hope Princeton Hwy.

The H-tree (two trees that have grown together)
still stands on Hudson Bay Street...

...although the empty space at the bottom
is now completely filled in
