Head office appears to refer both to the offices of the Nootka-Banfield Packing Company, Ltd., and later the Canadian Fishing Company, which purchased Nootka-Banfield in 1945, though the Canadian Fishing Company letterhead appears in the records much earlier than 1945. A set of blueprints for bunkhouses is also included in the fonds, though there are no dates or location information appended; as the bulk of the fonds (physically and chronologically) is the Nootka-Banfield records, the blueprints are filed as part of that series.
