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".
