This is the International Peace Arch under construction. The two ships on the plaques are above the exterior foot walls; one is the Canadian Steamship Beaver and the other, The Mayflower.The Peace Arch was dedicated in 1921. Judge Burke wears a dark suit and overcoat and holds a white fedora in front of him. He has white hair and a white goatee and looks very serious. Sam Hill, a head taller than the other two, wears a somewhat rumpled, faintly striped suit jacket and pants. He has white hair and a bushy white mustache. Frank Terrace wears a dark three piece suit and glowers at the camera. His hair is unkempt. He has a white goatee. Sam Hill established the Washington State Good Roads Association (WSGRA)in 1899 to encourage an adequate and practical statewide highway system; he envisioned Highway 99 that would extend from the US-Mexcio border to the US-Canadian border. On September 14, 1899 the first meeting of the Good Roads Association was held in Spokane, organized by Sam Hill. Fourteen men attended; Frank Terrace from Orillia, WA attended as did J.J. Donovan from Bellingham. Frank terrace and Sam Hill remained good friends over many years.
