Your Ancient Scribe


Your Ancient Scribe is a  lifelike depiction of Walter Mackay Draycott, a local author, former alderman and school trustee.  A huge community advocate, nature enthusiast and avid chronicler of pioneer life in Lynn Valley, the placement of the sculpture in Lynn Valley's Pioneer Square honours his many contributions.
