Description:

1) A high light-weight horse drawn wagon with one seat, really a democrat. The wagon was once used by the Oblate Priest who travelled between Port Douglas and 29 Mile House. Shafts are missing, sections of plank make the red painted box frame. Six boards nailed to boards below them make the floor within the frame. The seat is a piece of plank with strips of lighter board on the back and on both ends. Secured by two metal straps screwed to the seat area is an elevated back rest. The wheels have metal tires and wooden spokes ; back wheels are larger than the front set. Tied to the wooden back axle and at right angles to it are two sets of metal leaf springs. The front spring is parallel to the front axle. A reach connects the two axles Condition: In general, all metal is rusted. The wheels are disintegrating. 2) [October 2013] - this wagon was rebuilt in 2011 including the box and the wheels. The wheels were constructed by a wheelwright from Armstrong BC. The local Catholic church provided private funding for the new wheels. All that remains of the original artifact is the undercarriage and suspension and axels. The box was rebuilt by George Henry. The wagon was re-painted by museum staff.

Blacksmith's Bellows

Blacksmith's Bellows

Description:

The leather of the bellows has hardened and deteriorated through the many years since this artifact was part of the blacksmith's equipment at Port Pemberton. It seems to date from the late 1850's or the 1860's. [sic] S 17/38 [,] from William Spetch who said it had been brought up from Port Pemberton. [Updated register card entry]: In September 2012, May Walker (nee Taylor) said she remembered a these same bellows hanging in Axel Johnson's blacksmith shop that was located next to the PX Garage owned by her father R.H.E. Taylor. She is married to Bob Walker, George's brother, and asked Bob about the bellows. Bob remembers that Axel sold his shop to Philip and June Perkins in the early 1970's, and they moved it to their land to use as a garage. Bob thinks that George acquired all the blacksmith equipment from this shop via Philip Perkins. Based on this new evidence it is unlikely the bellows are from the gold rush era.
