Aerial photo published in the ASM News showing the break at Gifford. "Fateful break in the dyke near Gifford at 7:30 a.m. on Monday of last week sent the flood waters of the Fraser River pouring through a 60-foot gap, which later widened to 100 feet. This remarkable air photo from the Astray Studio shows the flood waters pouring past the No. 1 pumphouse at Gifford. Picture was taken from the plane as it approached from the west. Dyke which gave in under pressure is shown at the left but the break is one-third mile east of the pump house and is not shown. Water made a U-turn by the bank in the foreground and turned eastward to deluge scores of Matsqui farms, Matsqui village and a large portion of Ridgedale. (Cut courtesy Vancouver Province)"
