   Each album area, selected above, is in no particular order, but I've added comments of my own or copied what was on the photo itself.

   In 1953 Harold Hammer's first station was Pachena. He then moved over to Tofino when Pachena and Estevan consolidated in 1958. Harold supplied a miscellanies of photos--people, lighkeepers, equipment, old letters etc.

   Hector Corriveau's active time was during World War 1 at direction finding stations in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. He spent time at Point Gray and then moved over to Pachena as the officer in charge. In the autumn of 1929 at Pachena he injured himself, perhaps on a fall. His was taken to Vancouver for treatment but passed away in February 1930. His granddaughter, Heather MacDonald, passed on some of his photos.

   Joe Osborne passed on some of his photos from his days as an operator at Dead Tree, Spring Island and Prince Rupert in the 1940's.

   Keith Wood pounded brass at Estevan in 1958 and provided some photos of the equipment and the station.

   A miscellany of photos sent in by interested parties, plus some I've dug out of the depths of the internet.
