Sketches from British Columbia: Port Anderson, Anderson Lake, 1864

Sketches from British Columbia: Port Anderson, Anderson Lake, 1864. 'This port and town, though at present in "embryo," is pleasantly situated; and its bit of clear land will not fail to cheer the heart of the traveller, after having journeyed through so many miles of dense pine forest. Anderson Lake (fifteen miles in length) is, like all the others, bounded by lofty romantic but sterile mountains. The passage by steamer occupies about an hour and a half, landing us on a narrow neck of land, little over a mile in width, through which a tramroad is laid down for conveyance of freight. At the end of this portage we reach Seton Lake, sixteen miles in length. Again we embark in a small steamer, and in two horns land at Port Seton'. From "Illustrated London News", 1864.
