Album [views of British Columbia and Quebec]

File consists of one photograph album containing photographs depicting scenes and people in British Columbia and Quebec. The British Columbia photographs depict Indigenous people, the Canadian Pacific Railway at Yale Canyon and various views of Fraser Canyon, a paddle wheeler on the Fraser River (Hope, Yale), a pack train and G.M. Sproat, fishing operations, hunting along the Skeena River, militia and navy groups, and the H.M.S. Caroline at Esquimalt.

Some of the portraits of Indigenous people included in this album appear to have been taken during Department of Indian Affairs tours of inspection in 1873 near Cape Caution (including J-04207). In the album, the photographs are dated 1883.

Esquimalt Graving Dock, Thetis Cove, Esquimalt Harbour : plans

This unit consists of plans, renderings and photographs prepared in connection with two calls for tenders on the dry dock in Thetis Cove, Esquimalt Harbour (now called Naden Graving Dock). The first call was published in the British Columbia Gazette beginning Nov. 25, 1871. The submission of Thomas A. Bulkley was the only tender (plans in item 1) received by the deadline of Mar. 20, 1872, and this was rejected. Mr. Bulkley was then hired as Chief Engineer to the British Columbia Government. He was responsible for, among other things, preparing plans and specifications to be put at the disposal of bidders when the Government invited further tenders beginning Apr. 27, 1872 (closing Nov. 15, 1872). These latter plans form the bulk of the unit.
