From the Whonnock Website:
The Maple Ridge Museum & Archives has benefited from the work of local historians who have been most generous with their research and writing. One is Fred Braches of Whonnock who took over the mantle of “Mr. Whonnock” from his friend and predecessor Brian Byrnes. Fred has seen to the organization and documentation of Whonnock’s archives including many photographs and shares all of his material through his website.
