Goat Horns

Goat Horns

Description:

On each horn are four rings varying in distances from the base, the distances diminishing closer to the base. The horns lay beside Meager Creek, part of the skeleton that had lain there for a considerable time. In August 1975, T. Fougberg picked them up. Because no logging roads had yet reached the area at the hot spring, Eldon Talbot flew in the Fougbergs and members of the Priest family.

Welder's Hammer

Welder's Hammer

Description:

Light-weight, all metal tool intended for use, probably as a welder's hammer. Handle welded to base which appears to have been a chisel. Overall colour, rust. Condition: unused and sound, but rusted. History: The welding seems to discount the belief that the tool belonged to the late C.A, Hartzell, an early pioneer. Tool is probably too light to have been a miner's pick, as was thought.

Pick

Pick

Description:

The wooden pick handle is much worn, rotting near its base and farther up, mended with electric tape. Perhaps Mr. Walker was thinking of another pick when he told me of discovering a cache of unused picks when he cleared away a collapsed root house to make way for his present house. Samuel (A.W.) Spetch must have intended them for sale.

Taxidermied Cougar

Taxidermied Cougar

There is a kink near the end of it's tail and it is laying down with it's front paws extended out and it's hind legs to the side. The taxidermied animals were picked up from the Pemberton Secondary School and we later found out that the specimens were from the Coast Outdoor Mountain School which closed in 1995. These animals were originally from the Pemberton area and were taken to Squamish after the Outdoor School closed. Kirby Young, who used to teach in Pemberton, recognized them and organized their return.
