History Of Use
The following information has been taken from previous card: Steam whistle used for railroad. Came from a paddle wheel steamer. This steam whistle was originally on a steam boat that travelled the Fraser River to Prince George. Of course when the G.T.P. was built, there was no need for these boats. The late Archie Watt, Master Mechanic for the G.T.P., acquired the steam whistle from the original round house in Smithers.
