1910s – 1930s Early Days.

File consists of early photographs of precursors to S.M. Simpson, Ltd., predominantly ca. 1910 - 1939, with occasional outliers dating as recently as the 1950s. Featured in this collection are depictions of The Kelowna Sawmill (KSM), which was moved to the Lakeshore site from Okanagan Mission about 1892, and owned by various historic figures local to Kelowna. KSM burned down several times, and was eventually sold to S.M. Simpson in 1942. Much of the mill burned to the ground in 1944, and while the land was still owned by KSM, the company was owned by S.M. Simpson. Many of the photos in the collection date from those early years. Additionally, there are numerous photos of portable sawmills that were located in Ellison and Winfield, but which didn't form part of S.M. Simpson Ltd., although they were often owned solely, or in partnership, by S.M. Simpson.

Archibald Murchie collection

Biographical sketch:
Archibald Murchie (1852-1930) immigrated to Victoria, BC as an adult. His brother, Thomas Murchie would go on to found Murchie’s Tea and name his own son Archibald Murchie (1892-1925, and not to be confused with his namesake). Following his calling to become an evangelist minister for the Spiritualist Church (an off-shoot of the Church of England), he set off into the interior of BC to preach as a missionary.

Although Murchie had dabbled in photography prior to coming to Canada, his career began in earnest when he arrived in Williams Lake, BC, in 1893. Wherever his missionary calling took him, Murchie brought along his camera. Marcus Smith, famed CPR engineer and previous associate of Murchie’s by function of their common membership to the Spiritualist Church, hired Murchie to photograph the creation of a bridge over the Fraser River at Sheep Creek. Work on this project was slow enough to afford Murchie to engage in side trips to Quenel, BC, and farther north. Here he made a connection with the Reverend A. H. Cameron who suggested he establish a parish in Princeton. After this failed, Murchie returned to the Cariboo and set up a photography studio in Ashcroft, BC.

In 1911 Murchie moved again to the Okanagan Valley and in 1916 at age 64 he married Amy Wood. His last attributed photograph was taken in 1918.
