Photos of John Jackson /
Large L shaped building on right, towards back of picture,
with 3 dormers facing the camera,
was the Granby Hotel, built in 1917.
Just to the right of the hotel, and behind it,
I think? was the Anyox School, looks white in picture.
Oct 1917 Public Works Dept. were asking for tenders
for an extension to the School.
One map says this, and building next to it on the right,
was the Catholic Church.
Tennis courts are visible here as well in front of Hotel.
Hotel was 45 rooms, Steam heat, Hot and
cold running water,
and telephones in every room.

Union Steamship Co., SS Camosun
There was at least 3 "Camosun" ships.
I know this is not # 3.
I believe it was number 1.
Pictures of #3 on my Kemano pages
I've seen pictures of this one in 1910 in Rupert.
Name appears in 1908 paper, heading to northern ports.
Camosun was the original Native name
of what became Victoria BC
Hudson's Bay Company established the Trading Post named Camosun.
Camosun= "The Place of Rushing Water"
This ship, ca 1906, was damaged
on a rock in Lima harbour, near Rupert, described as
a Steel Steamer, built by Bow, McLachlan & Co., Paisley Scotland,
for the Union Steamship Company.
May 1910 Captain Batchelor took the Camosun
It took 125 passengers there.
In Service in 1905.
It ran until 1935, which jives with the date on these postcards.
Length 192.7 ft., Beam 35.2 ft, 3 decks.

I am an Amateur Historian, and Genealogist.
I use every source I can find, old newspapers, census, archives,
I do a quick search for the names on these pages.
Therefore I do NOT profess to have 100% accurate information.
Use my info as a clue to do your own research.
I am not related to these folks, nor do I have hidden info.
I encourage everyone to visit their local Museum,
or buy a local history book for more info.
I attempt to connect people with their ancestor in these places.
If it works on just one person, per page, it is worth the time it
I do not charge for access to my pages,
I do not have any Ads on my pages.
Please "link" to my
page from Facebook, etc.
Please do Not copy the pictures, or text on any page.
Please do Not ask to use pictures etc. on Facebook.
A "link" to my pages, does the same thing.
Just copy the hyper link, URL, shown in your browser above,
and paste that into facebook etc.,
or copy the links I have on the left side.
That is the honest and descent way to to do it!
Note- You will see some of the same pictures,
on other Archive / Museum sites online.
(Without my watermarks, and copyright information obviously.)
Reason- Most of these photos were commercial postcards,
and multi copies were made and sold.
All have different writing on the back is the difference.
I don't include all the backs to save bandwidth, but have them in my data.
Trust me, I DO NOT STEAL ARCHIVE PHOTOS!
I hope they, and others, Do NOT Steal mine!
If you want a copy of these, please ask them, not me!
