Winfield in the 1930’s and early forties, had an elementary school, but for high school, students had to travel to Oyama. Mary White, whose parents had their home and orchard on Highway 97 near Berry Road, took many photos of life in the 30s and 40s, and has donated her albums to the Museum. Among them are these pictures of students waiting for the bus.
Berry Road was then known as the Gully, or Gully Road. In winter, sleds and toboggans would travel at speed from Okanagan Centre Road East, down over the highway, past the post office, and hopefully come to a stop before hitting the creek below what is now the round about. A lookout would be stationed at the highway, and on a thumbs up, the sledder would careen through.
