The diagram below shows the “Oriental Village,” referring to the Sikhs’ bunkhouses and “Hindu Temple” (Sikh gurdwara). In the mid-1920s, more than 200 Sikh men lived and worked at Fraser Mills.

Our people can work. They are not afraid of working hard. We’ll work hard and not get tired like other people. And we work steady, we won’t ever take a day off or come in late. We won’t sit at home waiting for a job, we’ll work at a lower-paying job until a better job comes along. If we can’t get a job in town then we’ll go out of town and work up north on the Island. ~Mr. Manga S. Jagpal
