    Both a major food source and a common trading good, salmon was exported by Fort Langley and was also sent to the Hudson’s Bay Company’s inland posts. Saturday, October 6, 1827: “The Salmon Shed is now finished and half our Stock of dried Salmon hung up in it. Constant Fires are kept burning under it to dry the air, and prevent the Provisions above from being spoilt by getting damp and mouldy.” – George Barnston #FortLangleyJournals

    Stepping into the cooperage, you can tell that it was once a bustling site of production at Fort Langley National Historic Site. Historical interpreter, Jonathon, detailed an important figure at the cooperage in its earlier years… A man named William Cromarty held the position of master cooper and was the highest paid tradesman in 1857. His job was the most important of all – Cromarty shaped the pieces of white pine into perfect degrees of symmetry to be assembled into barrels. Since barrels were used as the main form of transport for the Fort’s most valuable trade items, the demand for barrels naturally grew. #FortLangleyStories

Friday, August 31, 1827: “The second Bastion is up and roofed in, and it only remains now to finish the flooring to complete it. Faniant, with Cornoyer, Dubois, and Arquoitte began to erect Pickets on the side of the Fort facing the River…” – George Barnston #FortLangleyJournals

    The Fort maintained an equitable and peaceful trade with the local First Nations. Saturday, August 18, 1827: “Work the same as yesterday. Indians bringing a few salmon, a little Sturgeon, besides Bark for covering Buildings which is received from them in exchange for Buttons, Rings and other trifling articles of Trade.” – George Barnston #FortLangleyJournals Note: Some spellings may look unusual to the modern eye, but have been reproduced as they appear in the original journals.

    Come back in history with us! Over the next several weeks, we will be sharing quotes from the #FortLangleyJournals (1827-1830), when the era of trade first got its start on the shores of the Fraser River. The journal entries were written by key individuals involved with the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) fur trade post on the Pacific slope, including chief trader, Archibald McDonald, and HBC clerk, George Barnston. Starting tomorrow, follow the hashtag #FortLangleyJournals as we uncover historical records from Fort Langley’s past. Look for the book (published by UBC Press) and share your own favourites!
