Coming down Eighth Street in New Westminster, Canadian photographer of The Province newspaper positioned himself to photograph the whole column marching down the hill. As he was getting ready to take the picture, he saw a young boy run out onto the road.

Wait for Me, Daddy captures the image of the boy, five-year-old Warren “Whitey” Bernard, running out of his mother’s grasp to his father.
