This huge relief map of BC is currently busted up and stored away. It used to be on display at the PNE in Vancouver.

I’d love to see it again.

How die you find this? The gmaps image is pixel vomit for me.

Yes, the current image on Google is unfortunate with its long hard shadows. I think an earlier version was clearer. Also, somebody took the effort to trace the outline of the pond on OpenStreetMap:

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
“If this were only cleared away,”
They said, “it would be grand!”

“If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year.
Do you suppose,” the Walrus said,
“That they could get it clear?”
“I doubt it,” said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.
