In the early 1940s, a small group of artists painted many scenes of our town. A good number of the paintings were done by Betty Lane and were in possession of Dr. Bruce Rigg, who was one of the artists. This painting of Queen Street, done by Betty Lane in 1946, shows Canada's old flag, the Union Jack, at the cenotaph clock tower. Also, a gas station sign can be seen where Shaw's corner is today.
