Description
The Level is light brown in colour that was once painted red. The paint can be seen faintly on the wider portion of the rectangular surfaces and more clearly on the narrower sections. It has a liquid bubble tube mounted between each of the 2 glasses; one is a level measuring flat surfaces the other is used like a plumb measuring vertical surfaces. Both glasses have plaster caulking that is cracked. The plumb level has a piece of caulking missing.
Narrative
This wooden level belonged to William Billeter 1895-1984. Bill & Flo Billeter arrived in the Driftwood Valley in 1920. He cleared his land with an axe and mattock. Their first home was a log cabin 11 x 14, with hued sills, floor and ceiling with a broadaxe. He set to dairy farming as soon as he could. He shipped milk to Prince Rupert by rail for over 20 years. Due to erratic train service, it became very trying. He stored milk in the ice houses in the summer, ice that he cut from Billeter Lake in the winter. In 1951 he quit milk and started raising beef. 1953 saw Bill & Flo sell the farm after 34 years of real hard work. They moved to town where he maintained the Federal Building and Police station until the age of 70. He constructed two homes and settled down in the one overlooking the valley and farm. Flo passed away in 1974 at the age of 82. Ten years later, Bill passed away at the age of 89. He was active in the building of Pioneer Place and the Fall Fair, helpful in founding the Credit Union, helped build the Glennwood Community Hall and was one of the first dairymen in the Bulkley Valley. Billeter Road was named after this family and officially named in December 1971.
History Of Use
This is a lightweight level with carefully made with seasoned kiln dried wood and sealed against moisture with plaster caulking. It can measure whether of not a frame is square or straight because of the 2 types of levels. One is vertical for vertical surface testing and the other is horizontal to measure if things are level.

Description
A thin wood particle backing with 25 different fishing lures glued onto it. At the top and centre of this backing is the block letters that read "Rapala".
History Of Use
This item was used by Steve Hidber in Oscar's Source for Sports - as of 2017 this had become Dan's Source for Sports. These plaques would be provided by lure manufactures and brought out during fishing season. The same one would be used "over a few years as they did not offer new colours that often back then." Nowadays, Steve says, manufacturers continually renew their stock with new colour variety. Therefore, this plaque and others have declined as manufacturers use colour catalogues and only make smaller cardboard displays that are less involved. This plaque was used in the 1980s.
