This photograph is similar to photo no. 238, but is taken from further up the street. New Westminster after the great fire. The view looks down Columbia Street. Street running left to right (right-hand side near foreground) is Church Street. Building at right next to Church with the arch is the YMCA. Cluster of buildings beyond this would be the Public Library, Firehall and the Post Office. Beyond that cluster of buildings Sixth Street runs down to Columbia Street. At the top of the hill are the ruins of the Court House. The aforementioned is all on the north side of the street.
