General note

According to the source this table scarf was a gift to her mother, Maude Elizabeth Banks from the Chinese workers at Hulbert Hop Yards. Mr. Joseph Banks was the manager at the yards. In the artifact's document file is a booklet of directions, "Chinese Game of Four Winds / Kwong Za Hing / Shanghai" Maude Elizabeth Banks passed away in Chilliwack July 16, 1953, at the age of 63 years. Her obituary was published in the Chilliwack Progress July 22, 1953 and appears on page 5 [part of which is recorded below]. "Mrs. Maude Elizabeth Ford Banks a resident of the Chilliwack district for 58 years died in hospital here Thursday after a lengthy illness. Mrs. Banks, wife of Joseph Banks, 209 Maple avenue, was for many years an active member of St. Thomas Anglican church and was a past president of the Women's Auxiliary. Born in Michigan, the former Maude Elizabeth Bremner moved to Alberta in 1893 with her family and two years later came to Sardis to make her home with her aunt, Mrs. Lickman. She married Joseph Banks, then manager of the Hulbert Hop Yards in November 1903. One of the original members of the Chilliwack Valley Horticultural Society, she was an active worker with the Floral section of the Fair Board for many years. She had also been a member of the Sara Wells, IODE chapter during the first World War."
