Note about the wooden cover, from p. 3, Volume 1:
"Braeside has only one industry, Gillies Bros. Lumber Mill.

Therefore, it was decided by the curator, Mrs. Forrest Merrifield and her committee, Mrs. Phil Armstrong and Mrs. James Beattie, that a cover of wood was the most appropriate for the village Tweedsmuir History."
