Description
Red ribbon with "Bulkley Valley / Fall Fair / Smithers, BC / Second Prize / 19?3" stamped in black. "1933" has also been handwritten in ink on the top. The dates are difficult to read in both cases as it appears as though black ink has been added over top and has run on the silk.

Description
Red ribbon with "Bulkley Valley / Fall Fair / Smithers, BC / Second Prize / 19?3" stamped in black. "1933" has also been handwritten in ink on the top. The dates are difficult to read in both cases as it appears as though black ink has been added over top and has run on the silk.
History Of Use
Possibly won for the category of "Sheaf Sweet Clover" or "Pickling cucumbers, pint" as an F.A. Gilbert placed second for these categories in 1923. No fall fair was held in 1933, so the date that was associated with this ribbon by the former owner seems incorrect. Likely it was also from 1923.
