Silver City Street Dance

Trail was the first interior city to have concrete paved streets

Trail was the first city in the B.C. Interior to have concrete paved streets.

Bay Avenue and Riverside Avenue were paved in 1926 at a cost of $40,000. The rest of the downtown and all of Rossland Avenue was paved in 1927.

To celebrate the completion of Trail’s downtown street paving project, a street dance was held.

The dance took place in front of the Crown Point Hotel on October 6, 1926.

This photo was taken from the (former) Crown Point Hotel balcony.
