BC Packers

The British Columbia Packing Company or BC Packers was another fishing company that had a long presence in the Bella Coola valley from somewhere in the early 1900's to the early 1990's when the company removed all of it's staff and operations from Bella Coola.  The building in the photo is the large net loft (a place to store fisherman's nets and to work on them).  It was originally a cannery established by John Clayton and later sold to the British Columbia Packers Association which become BC Packer eventually.

It still dominates the views when  you are down at the Bella Coola Harbour.  Grizzly
