Scope and content

Photograph depicts a view of St'a7mes village looking north, taken from the original Government Wharf in Squamish (Newport). This wharf was built in 1902 and was temporarily replaced by other docks to the west built by the PGE Railway in 1913-14. This photograph was taken after 1914, since the houses in the photo were built by the PGE Railway Company as part of the 1914 reserves sale deal.

Further details that date this photograph between late 1914 and 1920:

  • the Merrill & Ring logging operation beach camp is not depicted (opened in 1926)
  • the dock from which the photo is taken fell into disrepair after 1914 and was not rebuilt until 1929.
