Name of creator
The Ashcroft Water, Electric and Improvement Company was incorporated in 1899 to supply Ashcroft, B.C. and the surrounding area with power, water and light for domestic, mining and manufacturing purposes. The company was sold to Henry Robert Budd around 1934, and then again in 1953 to the B.C. Electric Railway Company.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of financial records (1934-1953), stock certificates (1899-1901) and correspondence relating to financial matters. It also includes financial records of Ashcroft Irrigated Lands Ltd. (1952-1960), stock certificates (1953-1961) and correspondence relating to the development of East Branch Irrigation (1952-1956), as well as a 1918 report which includes photographs and plans.
