Series 6.9-- Resource Industries, (1903-1976), Page 1

The major resource industries on the Sunshine Coast were logging, which is still important; fishing, which has declined today; and quarrying, first granite and more recently sand and gravel -- an important contributor to the economy on the coast.

1903 -- Moffat's logging camp, located nearer to Sechelt than Gibson's, had its log dump at the mouth of Wilson Creek. This team of horses is probably dragging the logs to this log dump.

1920s -- These photographs of Roy Fleming's logging operations at Roberts Creek depict the dam at the head of the flume, the flume itself and mules pulling shingle bolts. The flume was almost four miles long and carried cedar logs to the mouth of Roberts Creek.
