archival descriptions
Fonds · 1920-1997

The fonds is comprised of photographs documenting the activities and concerns of the west coast fishing industry: fishing boats, fishing and fish processing, fish plants and canneries, special events related to the promotion of fish products, Adams River sockeye runs, traditional First Nations fisheries, sports fishing, research on salmon, salmon habitat destruction, and hatchery and fishways construction and operations. The pictures were taken all along the British Columbia coast from the San Juan fishing grounds on southwestern Vancouver Island to Prince Rupert. Included are photographs taken at salmon producing lakes and rivers in the interior of British Columbia. Some of the photographs originated at food shows in Europe and the Tokyo wholesale fish market. The fonds includes 12 films with fishing related topics plus a small amount of textual material related to the photographs.

The fonds consists of the records of the Lytton and District Board of Trade for 1969. Includes correspondence, to and from the Board and the Minister of Lands and Forests in regards to the extension of timber rights for a local logging operation and mill, the Spatsum Lumber Company. Accompanying the correspondence is a copy of the official petition sent to the Minister, listing the signatures and occupations of all local residents in favour of this action. The letters and petition were the outcome of a severe economic downturn, in that if the local lumber mill was not recognized as an 'established licensee' and allotted crown timber rights, it could no longer survive.
