Kemano, British Columbia, Canada

Photos submitted by Dave Klassen, Mar 4, 2018
Photos from his father Harvey Klassen's collection
Harvey worked at Kemano in 1953 age 19
More info from Dave:
I've come across a small amount of additional information regarding my father's employment up at Kemano:
• his father was the first to be working up in that area; Henry Klassen (my grandfather) was working at the Kenny Dam site, from the Fall of 1951 to April 1953
• Harvey Klassen (my father, in the photos) worked as a Warehouseman for the Fred Mannix Construction Company at the Kenny Dam site from July 1952 to April 1953
• Harvey then worked as a Warehouseman for the Morrison-Knudsen Construction Company at the Kemano site from April 1953 to September 1953
• thus we can more accurately date the photos to April-September 1953

They operated their own saw mill here for a while at the beginning.
