Scope and content

This series consists of architectural plans and technical drawings for townsite buildings and millsite buildings and machinery at Ocean Falls.

Variations in spelling occur throughout the titles of plans and drawings.

Letters following a drawing number indicates a revision (eg 18347A is the revision to 18347). In some cases, numbers were also used to note revisions.

Secondary numbers, where they exist, do not appear to have been assigned by staff at Ocean Falls but by contractors or companies, including Crown Zellerbach in Vancouver, who were consulted and made drawings or plans for the Ocean Falls site.

Letter prefixes of drawing numbers exist, in some cases, for the Townsite plans/drawings (T) and the Ocean Falls Company plans/drawings (OC).

Plans and drawings were made on linen, paper, and vellum and were stored in flat cabinets, rolled on wooden doweling and/or housed in cardboard boxes.

In most cases, physical storage of records, in the drawers of the cabinets in sequential order, reflects the filing system used while records were active at the millsite.
