Canadian Pacific Railway (C.P.R.) photographs

Series consists of 545 photographs of the Canadian Pacific Railway (C.P.R.), thought to be taken by Richard or Hannah Maynard. In 1880-1881, Richard Maynard was hired to document the construction of the C.P.R. but photos within this series may have been taken at later dates or by other photographers. Images depict trains ("rolling stock"); views of locations along the construction route, including rivers, bridges, and mountains; tracks and construction in progress; wrecks following accidents; snowsheds; and portraits of workers.

  • Series
  • 1953-1995

The series consists of civil court orders issued by the Revelstoke Supreme Court and the County Court of Yale between 1953 and 1995. Orders are a formal expression of the court’s will, and orders in this series cover a variety of civil issues, including adoptions, foreclosures, family maintenance, divorce, letters of administration, consent orders, and will disputes.

The records arrived at the Archives in shannon folders, and were placed in acid-free folders. Researchers should note that Revelstoke appears to have restarted numbering volumes from 1 at the beginning of each year, with the result that there are multiple volume 1s. Researchers should use the volume and folio numbers in conjunction with the year of the order they are looking for.
