Good pics, Persephone.
Nice haul too.
As I was l looking through the first batch I was wondering about stamps and dogs and got my answer. Technology hasn't caught up there. Cool.

OFB, I just noticed you have a boat made by Kishi boat works! I have a dock mate who has one too. His cat is called Kishi! We are tied up beside the Britannia shipyard.

Here's another "Once upon a time in BC"

The Samson V, operated by the Department of Public Works (Canada) was the last working paddle wheeler in BC. By working, I don't mean tourist cruises about the harbour! I took these photos in October 1980, on the very last day it worked. Ted Sakurai and Kurt Hengstler were the gillnet test fishermen who fished the Cottonwood test fishing drift in the Fraser River, also known as Tilbury at pillar buoy S-28. Snags were a regular occurrence interfering with the sets on the site. Kurt and Ted lassoed this snag with a steel cable and the Samson pulled it up.

The Samson, out of the mist:

Awesome Jim.
There is so much marine history on our coast it is nice when you meet someone who was a part of it. Even nicer when you are that someone.

There was a similar snag boat to the Samson here in Puget Sound, the WT Preston. It was still working when I moved here in 1979. It was taken out of service in 1981 and is now on display and open to the public on land in Anacortes. This shot was taken in 1940 on Lake Union.

I certainly miss that part of the world, having being born and raised in BC.

My current boat was named after an old BC paddlewheeler. She was the fastest boat on Kootenay Lake back in the day.
