Pilot House

December 1978 — The original pilot-house on Pilot House Road in Caulfeild, West Vancouver. The pilot-house furnished pilots for all the deep-sea ships entering and leaving the port of Vancouver from 1898 until about 1920. They were rowed out to the ships by Thomas Grafton who lived in the cottage. The pilot-house was also a post office and a store and then a private residence until shortly after this picture was taken when it was demolished and replaced with a large home. More about the history of Caulfeild can be found in the West Vancouver Archives HERE


1966 — A few miles to the east of Revelstoke, at the head of the Upper Arrow Lake, there was a small town called, obviously, Arrowhead. When the Keenlyside Dam was finished in 1968 the level of the lake was raised and the town was flooded. There are no buildings left from where in the early part of the century paddlewheelers arrived south east BC and connected with the Canadian Pacific Railway.
