Ernest Hann (left) past president of the Fall Fair Board, with Fred Fowler (right), former Smithers Village Commissioner and later Smithers' first Mayor, accepting the return of the Seely Doodson Challenge Cup, which was presented in 1921, for best fat steer at the Smithers' Fall Fair. Gurth Rands (centre), a former resident of Smithers who moved to Victoria, found the cup at a second-hand store in Victoria.

This photo was also published in the August 27th 1969 edition of the Smithers Interior News. The cup resides with the Bulkley Valley Museum, artifact 1982.18.1.
