The City of New Westminster has commissioned internationally acclaimed sculptors, Veronica and Edwin Dam De Nogales, to create a war memorial sculpture, based on Wait for Me Daddy, Canada’s iconic World War II photograph by Province Newspaper photographer, Claude P. Dettloff.

If you aren’t familiar with the Wait for me Daddy photo taken on October 1, 1940, Dettloff was photographing The British Columbian Regiment marching down 8th Street in New Westminster. In a random moment, Dettloff snapped a young boy, Whitey Bernard, escape his mother’s grasp and run towards his father marching off to war. Wait for Me Daddy became an enduring symbol of Canada’s World War II effort.


The monument was unveiled October 4, 2014 at Hyak Square, near the exact spot where Dettloff captured this special moment. The Anvil Centre has launched an exhibit running through October 4th to January 24th to highlight the sculpture and historic photograph. This exhibit is complimentary and open to the public.


We encourage you to visit the Wait for Me Daddy exhibit and statue at the newly opened Anvil Centre. Trapp+Holbrook is located just a short walk’s away from this exciting and educational exhibit. Be sure to stop by while you’re in the area to learn more about this historic neighbourhood and how it could be your new home. We are open daily from 12-5pm except Friday at 702 Columbia Street. We hope to see you soon!

Trapp Image

We’ve been busy at Trapp+Holbrook meticulously rebuilding the striking terracotta and brick façades to their original glory. You may not be able to see it, but the brick repointing in the interior of the Holbrook portion of the building is now complete! Brick repointing is a process that involves the renewing of pointing the external joints between bricks, to fill in any gaps that may have been formed over time due to weathering. This important process is to ensure that all voids between the mortars are filled to guarantee no future water damage or leaks.

The exterior bricks will begin repointing later this week and then the bricks will be getting a nice fresh coat of paint.


Not only is the vital repointing task nearly complete, but the highly-anticipated terracotta installation will commence soon and the boom lift is on site. Atlantis Rauch has been hard at work cleaning and repairing all 1,449 pieces of the terracotta facade, which are now ready to be re-installed. This stunning restoration of original terracotta pieces will change the face of Columbia Street giving Downtown New West an iconic focal point speaking to the history of the neighborhood.


You may have also noticed the new windows on the Holbrook section of the building. These large wooden windows give our Holbrook suites an abundance of character. Coupled with the interior heritage brick walls, these suites feature a unique mix of old and new that cannot be matched.

The windows for the Trapp section are soon to follow. The mix of large refurbished and wood windows combined with the terracotta stone will add charm to Trapp+Holbrook inside as well as out making it a stunning place to live.

Come see the progress of this one of a kind project for yourself at 702 Columbia Street. We are open daily 12-5pm, except Fridays. Please visit us or give us a call at 604.525.0223 to learn more about our extended Summer Festival Special*, which could save you $5,000 in upgrades and moving expenses on your brand new home at Trapp+Holbrook.
