Trusty notepad in hand, look for clues left behind in the Grand Gallery by the notorious early 20th century “gentleman bandit” Bill Miner.
Born in the U.S.A., this natural leader and his partners in crime were involved in many robberies on the West Coast. He was captured and escaped from jail several times. Miner was involved in the first train robbery in Canada where the famous phrase “Hands Up” was first coined. The Mounties made their mark on law enforcement and were highly valued after capturing this renowned bandit in 1906.
Then, go to the children's craft workshop to share what you have found and make your own policeman's badge.
