The rusted and pitted shovel was originally round, but now the worn cutting edge is irregular. The Fougbergs found it at Skookumchuck Hotsprings in August 1964. Probably Goodwin Purcell built the Hotsprings House. Certainly buildings existed there and for who knows how long people lived there.

Scythe Handle

Scythe Handle

This worn and weathered scythe handle is particularly worn and partly rotted in the area where the blade was attached. A bolt passes through that section and has a bar of metal attached.

See Eaton's 1901 Spring and Summer Catalogue pp. 283 for a snath (scythe handle) priced at 65c.
