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.

Bullet Mold

Bullet Mold

Description:

Found at Port Pemberton site. Like many items found by Walker & Reid, thought to date from the period of the Gold Rush traffic through this district. The steel mold is rusted and has a crack in one of the wooden handles. Apparently a projection possibly similar to that on the right is missing on the left. After further research, it is believed that this is a "Winchester" bullet mold for a rifle. The handles are walnut, and the metal cast is iron. The maker's mark is no longer visible. Research indicates that it is from 1870's-1880's. The mold is still in perfect condition, grooves still intact.

Hand Saw

Hand Saw

Description:

This rusted saw, Walker and Reid located and dug up at Port Pemberton. Its age can only be estimated. Does it belong to the late 1850's or 1860's period of the Gold Rush, when Port Pemberton did have not only a fluctuating, transient population but also men who established stopping places, at least one Store & blacksmith shop? They built barns for mules and oxen and cabins for muleteers and boatmen. How long some lived on at the Port after traffic to the north shifted to the Fraser Canyon route seems impossible to know. Oil was applied to the saw to remove some of the rust. On the cracked wooden handle is carved " R".
