General note

Supplied title from source of copy. This is a copy of a selected British Columbia item from the Allan D. Taylor film collection at the NAC. The NAC gives the date of 1912 for this item; however, pioneer cinematographer A.D Kean is known to have filmed the Lillooet Dominion Day celebrations in both 1914 and 1915, and this matches other footage confirmed as having been shot by Kean.
