Historical BackgroundReturn to Top

The Clark and Lyford Company expedition was undertaken on the Kalmor II, a 45-foot launch with a 9-foot beam and lasted 18 days from June 7 to June 24, 1917 through the sheltered waters of the British Columbia coastal timber regions, making a total of 25 landings. Beginning in Vancouver, the expedition traveled through the Straits of Georgia, stopping at Secret Cove, Pender Harbor, Goliath Bay, Deserted Bay, Myrtle Point, Powell River, Ragged Island, Squirrel Cove, Talbot Cove (on Teakerne Arm, West Redonda Island), Quathiaski Cove, Menzies Bay, Rock Bay, Camp O, Topaze Bay, Blinkinsop Bay, Port Neville, Burial Cove, Thompson Sound, Booker Lagoon and Creasy Bay, and returned back to Vancouver for a total of 772 miles.

Under the direction of Dr. Judson F. Clark, Captain and "host" from Clark & Lyford, Ltd., on board the Kalmor II, launch also were Harold Gardiner, navigator; Charles A. Rooth, crew; John D. Cress, staff photographer of the Lumber World Review; and Bolling Arthur Johnson, editor of the Lumber World Review (and presumed the author of the article).

Dr. Judson F. Clark, a partner in the Vancouver forestry consulting firm of Clark and Lyford, Ltd. was formerly the Provincial Forester of Ontario. With a Ph.D. from Cornell University, he was committed to forest conservation and was the first professional forester to enter private practice, establishing the Judson F. Clark Co. in 1904. In 1912, he joined forces with the Lyford brothers and established Clark and Lyford, Ltd. The firm made a specialty of timber cruising (the sampling of a stand of trees to estimate the amount of standing timber) and topographical mapping work, as well promoting forest conservation practices within the timber industry using ideas and techniques developed by Dr. Clark.

Dr. Clark was interested in promoting the British Columbia timberlands and explaining the various legal descriptions and terminologies used within the British Columbia timber industry. The voyage of the Kalmor II, launch thus provided the content for the July 25, 1917 Lumber World Review "Primer" article, as well as showing the actual timberlands, logging camps, and equipment used for the logging operations.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Clark and Lyford album contains photographs from a coastal voyage of the Kalmor II launch to explore and document the timber stands and logging operations in southern British Columbia.

A steam donkey engine was an integrated machine consisting of a power plant and gearing that turned one or more drums or winches containing wire rope. Designed to lift, drag, and move logs from the stump to an accumulation point, steam donkey engines were also used to load logs on cars that transported them to distant mill sites.

 Unloading long logs at Rock Bay, looking east from the tidewater terminal of the British Columbia Mills, Timber and Trading Company's operation on Vancouver Island, British Columbia (W469)
The unloading is done by means of a simple device of a series of wire ropes passed under the logs, which are pulled taut by another wire rope attached to the locomotive, which by simply slacking ahead a few yards lifts several loads at once to an angle of 45 degrees. Then the logs roll into the water simultaneously and with that one motion, the lateral ropes relax, are loosened by hand, and weights attached at opposite ends automatically drag the ropes back beyond the track. The locomotive then couples to the train, pulls the second half to a similar position train of eight long carloads in two motions, taking ten minutes for the entire operation.

Seabird Lake provided very favorable facilities for holding and sorting logs from the timber tributary to it fresh water, where they could be held for a considerable time without injury.
