Max Jacquiard - Squamish Barge Slip

The Pacific Great Eastern Railway was incorporated in 1912 to build a line
connecting the port of Vancouver with the Grand Trunk Pacific mainline at
Prince George. It wasn't until the 1950's that the connection was completed,
however. For many years the rails ended at Squamish and Quesnel. Passengers
and railcars travelled between Squamish and Vancouver by Union Steamships
and rail barges respectively. In a view from around 1950, engine N0. 55 waits
to unload freight cars from the oncoming barge propelled by PGE tug "Pont
Ellice". The freight dock branched off from the passenger dock which is out
of the picture.

Max Jacquiard has a sizeable research library of printed materials, photos and
slides of steam trains and the places they would have operated. It is that attention
to precise and accurate details that can be seen in his paintings. The sensitivity
to his subject and quiet passion that is infused into each work seem to allow
Max Jaquiard to breath life into the canvases. The images he creates have
captured the imaginations of steam buffs across Canada and the United
States. His paintings grace the walls in homes across North America.
