10.1 The Baker Home in 1888

 
 
   
 
 
  10.1 The Baker Home in 1888 replaced the Galbraith Ranch which Baker had bought about 1885, but which burned in 1887. It was a trading post on the main floor, while the attic was the residence accessed by the covered stairway on the front. Notice the vertical slat siding, common in pre-railway Cranbrook, since the only lumber mill at that time was at Wasa. CBK.2009.029.885
