Seton Lake Fish Hatchery

Photograph depicts the Seton Lake hatchery building constructed by the British Columbia provincial government in 1903.

Additional photographs and information about this construction is provided in the Fisheries Commissioner's Report for that year:
"In October, 1902, bids were invited for the construction of a hatchery building and Superintendent's cottage on Lake Creek, the outlet of Seton Lake, near the village of Lillooet. There were six bidders. A contract was let to W. Duguid, of Lillooet, the lowest bidder, in November. The buildings were completed and accepted in March, 1903. The hatchery building is a substantial wooden structure 210 feet long by 40 feet wide. The roof is supported by the walls, thus giving a clear floor space for the 160 hatching troughs, which are each 16 feet long, 16 inches wide and 7 inches deep. Two troughs are placed end to end and extend the width of the building, and receive the water from the head flumes which run lengthwise of the building. The equipment permits of the handling of forty million eggs. The water supply is taken from Lake Creek at a point some 1,400 feet from the hatchery, and about the same distance from Seton Lake, by means of a wooden flume three feet wide and two feet deep. A comfortable cottage for the Superintendent and a boarding-house for the other employees were constructed and furnished. The station in all its equipment is modern, and is not excelled by any other on the coast..."

Hatchery operations were terminated in Seton Creek in 1915 because the salmon runs had been almost destroyed.

CPR Pitt River swing bridge

Photograph depicts the Pitt River swing bridge in an open position. Apparently, it opened up to half a dozen times a day to allow large pleasure crafts to go through. Photograph taken at high tide when little clearance occurred.

Queensborough bridge

Photograph depicts railway track previously owned by BCER. It led onto the east end of Lulu Island and then to Annacis Island. Looking from the Naew West River Walk to the Queensborough bridge that was protected by signals and had a high chain link fence to deter pedestrians. It was likely that the rail was only used at night. Originally built by Canadian Northern Railway to reach Steveston, circa 1917.

CPR Wynndel

Photograph taken looking north, with a spur in the foreground. It was used by ore mixed freight daily.

CPR Wynndel

Photograph depicts the rear view of an elevator showing its name. Track was on the far side.

CPR Wynndel

Photograph depicts a grain elevator that had a 7 car spur to service it. Davies doubted if grain traffic ever moved by rail near Wynndel. Two flat cars appeared to have used the platform to overload machinery and vehicles.
