Map of Buildings Used by the BC Security Commission, 1942
Proposed uses for each building and capacity are written onto the map. The building use sometimes changed. For example, building K is shown as empty, but later became the men’s dormitory. Building H was initially used by the men, then later by women.

The larger road running down the right-hand side is Renfrew Street. The larger (white) building to the left of the Transportation Building was the Stock Judging or Horse Show Pavilion.
