Caption

Funeral procession for the Ballantynes Fire Victims.  Arthur Cyril Pearce was a driver of dignitaries at the tragically large funeral for 41 victims of the fire and gained these photos from an unknown friend in the crowd.  This photo shows the trucks that we think contained the bodies of the victims.  They are loaded with flowers.

23 November 1947
