Custodial history

The photographs were acquired but not accessioned some time before 1994. There is no record of their provenance.

Scope and content

Most photographs are of Burrard Dry Dock and its affiliate Pacific Dry Dock (North Van Ship Repairs). All except a few are duplicated in fonds 27. The photographs in files 2 and 3 have been printed from negatives in file 4. A line through the image on the contact sheet means it has been printed. Each image on the contact sheets and the accompanying descriptions are numbered. The prints have these numbers written on them, as well as the number of any similar or identical photographs in fonds 27 or elsewhere. They are also numbered sequentially from 159-1 to 159-69. This is the archival reference number.
