Spectators sitting in the shade

Photograph depicts a row of spectators wearing nice clothing, sitting on the curb in the shade of mature chestnut trees. Many of the spectators appear to be Indigenous women and children. They may be gathered to watch a parade or special event. There are Union Jacks and Canadian Red Ensign flags hanging in the trees, suggesting the event may be a Dominion Day event. Although the location is unknown, the presence of the chestnut trees suggests that this may have been taken on Lillooet Main Street.

Railway workers on Pacific Great Eastern #3 locomotive

Photograph depicts the Pacific Great Eastern Railway #3 locomotive from the Davenport Locomotive Works. Two railway workers lean against the front of the locomotive for a posed portrait. The individual at left may be Angus McRae, a PGE locomotive engineer.

More information about the locomotive, Pacific Great Eastern #3:
The locomotive was built by Davenport Locomotive Works in Davenport, Iowa in February 1914, serial number 1477, for Patrick Welch, one of the developers (Foley, Welch & Stewart) of the PGE railway. Most of the early equipment, although lettered with the Pacific Great Eastern name, was owned by Patrick Welch. The Provincial Archives in Victoria holds a document showing that Welch sold all the equipment to the newly incorporated Pacific Great Eastern Equipment Company, of which he was also a director, on 14 June 1916 in exchange for 6000 shares in the company. Much, if not all, of the equipment had PGEEC "ownership plates" applied during the 1916-1918 period. It was not until the Provincial Government acquired the railway (and the Equipment Company) in 1918 that the equipment actually became the property of the railway. Pacific Great Eastern #3 was a switching locomotive with an 0-6-0 wheel arrangement and eight-wheel tender built to a standard Davenport design.

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.
