    #DidYouKnow, the Mad Hatter originated from the phrase “mad as a hatter” and there’s actually some history behind it? In the 18th century, the popularity of top hats was on the rise and the Hudson's Bay Company took advantage of this trend. Hat makers used mercury as part of the process of making felt from the underfur of the beaver. What people didn’t know at the time, was that this fashion staple had a major flaw. For top hat wearers and producers, frequent exposure to mercury eventually led to mercury poisoning, which caused serious damage to the nervous system; and hence, the phrase “mad as a hatter” was born! #FortLangleyStories

    Happy Women’s History Month all! October is Women’s History Month in Canada. It is a time for us to celebrate the outstanding achievements of women and girls who have helped shape Canada. It is also an opportunity for us to learn about the important contributions of women and girls over time to our society. Canada’s history is rich with examples of women whose contributions have helped shape our nation, past and present. For example, back in the 1800s in Fort Langley, the women worked alongside of men. Besides being housewives, they also performed social, political and economic roles between HBC’s men and the local people. Let’s take time this month to celebrate the Women’s History Month either in our workplaces or in our communities. hhtp://www.swc-cfc.gc.ca/commemoration/whm-mhf/index-en.html

    Agricultural operations on the Fort Langley farm supplied potatoes, barley, peas and wheat, among other farm produce. Saturday, October 18, 1828: “With the exception of the Carpenter – Cook – Gatekeeper and Fisherman who is directed to another attempt in that way – all hands have been in the Potato fields & housed 45 Barrels…” -Archibald McDonald #FortLangleyJournals

    Can you name the item in this photo that was in high demand by the First Nations? It's the Hudson's Bay Company Point Blanket! This staple item was produced from high quality wool and was mass produced in mills in England. The points on the blanket were not merely for design – each point represented the size and weight of the blanket. The value of one HBC blanket changed over time, depending on supply and demand. #FortLangleyStories
