The canteen building was completed in 1961 so this image is no earlier than 1961, but it is unclear exactly when it was taken. This slide is from a series of slides compiled for a lecture series. The earliest the series was compiled was 1966 after Building 20 was completed, which features heavily in the series. Building 20 was the last building to move from the Abbotsford factory site and the lecture series might have been commissioned to mark this occasion. This slide probably dates from when the whole series was taken, no earlier than 1966.
