Custodial history

The scrapbook has been stored in the attic trunk of the donor's Aunt in Short Hills, New Jersey since 1945, when the donor's grandmother (surname Hartshorn) passed away. Prior to 1945, the scrapbook was in the donor's grandmother's possession, but no information is available regarding the creator of the scrapbook. Notations in the scrapbook refer to "myself" indicating that the creator is pictured in the book. The donor has explained that her great-grandmother Joanna Randall Hartshorn was from Nova Scotia, but there is no immediately obvious connection to Coquitlam.

Scope and content

The item consists of a scrapbook containing photographs that depict life in the construction camp for the second phase of the Coquitlam Dam between 1912 and 1913. The photographs show the camp, the bridge, Coquitlam Lake, salmon jumping in the lake, panoramic vistas, and social activities like rat catching, boating, and picnics.
