View of Cayoosh Creek

Photograph depicts the confluence of the Cayoosh Creek outflow into the Fraser River in Lillooet, BC. Seton River is visible in the foreground. This area is Cayoose Creek Band (Sekw'el'wás First Nation) territory and includes land currently encompassed within Cayoosh Creek Indian Reserve 1. The Pacific Great Eastern Railway bridge over the Fraser River is also visible in the background.

Alta Lake

Photograph depicts a couple in a row boat (likely the same couple depicted in image 2020.08.59) near Alta Lake shore docks and buildings. A rail line and a railway water tower are visible in the background. The water tank is a typical PGE 25,000 gallon water tank. The station would be a little over 400 feet south of the tank and is hidden by the stand of trees.

Pacific Great Eastern Railway train on Pavilion Creek trestle

Photograph depicts a Pacific Great Eastern Railway train on Pavilion Creek trestle at Mile 20.3. Also visible are a water tank and possibly the graveyard at Pavilion.

The ca. 1921-1927 “PGE Bridge List” from the notebook of William H. Hewlett (1914-1968) references a 389.4 foot long, 34 ft. high, framed trestle with 26 spans of 14.8 feet at Mile 20.3 carrying the line over Pavilion Creek. There was a water tank at Pavilion located between the North end of the siding and the South end of the trestle. A track profile chart confirms that the track at this point is on a 12 degree curve. This photograph was taken from a vantage point up the hill to the North. The structures at the lower left of this image (2020.08.82) are consistent with a small construction camp, which accounts for the presence of a camp cook in image 2020.08.83.

"Canadian Railway and Marine World" reported in their January 1916 issue (p. 11, c.1), that track had been laid to within ½ mile of Clinton (Mile 45.0) on Dec. 14, 1915. If a constant rate of construction had been maintained from Mile 14, reached on July 30, 1915 as previously discussed, to Clinton, the approximate date of completion to Pavilion would be around the end of August, 1915 which is probably the earliest possible date for this photograph.

The road seen in the centre foreground travelled from Lillooet to Seton Lake then to Golden Cache Mine.
