Finn Slough

Finn Slough is a tiny Fraser River fishing community in Richmond, British Columbia. The community has approximately 30 residents who live in wooden houses, both floating and built on stilts, along the marshy river bank. Many of the buildings were built between the late 19th century and 1950s and many have decayed severely, while some have been carefully restored. Finn Slough was founded by Finnish settlers who came to Richmond in the 1880s. Most of these residents made a living from fishing and retained the occupany rights. (Wikipedia)
