This is Mr. Dodds, one of two brothers who own the barn. He was most hospitable, inviting us in, and telling us about his grandfather, who built the barn in 1898. He allowed me to take as many pictures as I liked so I was a happy camper, indeed. Thanks, Mr. Dodds!
Mr. Dodds and Bill talked for a while, but I unfortunately missed quite a bit of the information in my zeal to take photographs. I do know that the original Dodds family arrived via the mid-Western States before finally choosing to settle on Salt Spring Island.
The hay smelled fresh and was stacked neatly in the immaculate..
and beautifully constructed barn.
