Administrative History
This steam donkey or steam winch was made by Vancouver Engineering Works Ltd. It consisted of a fuel tank for oil and two winch drumes. The engine and winch drums were mounted on a steel frame that could in turn be mounted on skids or a deck depending on intended use. This steam donkey originates from the Anderson Saw Mill on Powell Lake in the Powell River area of Vancouver Island. Amonde Ephrom ( or Amandus Ephraim) Anderson born in Sweden in 1888, moved to Wisconsin with his family at age 4. At a young age Andy, as he was nicknamed in the United States, moved to Alberta to trap for the Hudson Bay Company. Gradually he moved west and shifted from trapping to logging. In 1908 he was on the West Coast logging for the Powell River Company Mill. In 1932 he started his own saw mill, on leased land, at Anderson's Bay along the south shore of Powell Lake. Andy purchased most of his equipment from three or more mills in the area (Powell River Co. at Stillwater, Vanada and Yellow Cedar Co.). The mill operated for 28 years and at times employed up to 30 men, until the land lease was cancelled in 1960. Anderson and his wife Clara moved along with all of mill's equipment to a property on nearby Mowat Bay, but they were never able to re-establish a working saw mill. Many of the pieces of equipment remained outside until they were purchased and moved to Burnaby Village Museum in the mid 1970s. This steam donkey equipment was deaccessioned by Burnaby Village Museum in 2015.

Administrative History
This steam donkey or steam winch was made by Vancouver Engineering Works Ltd. It consisted of a fuel tank for oil and two winch drumes. The engine and winch drums were mounted on a steel frame that could in turn be mounted on skids or a deck depending on intended use. This steam donkey originates from the Anderson Saw Mill on Powell Lake in the Powell River area of Vancouver Island. Amonde Ephrom ( or Amandus Ephraim) Anderson born in Sweden in 1888, moved to Wisconsin with his family at age 4. At a young age Andy, as he was nicknamed in the United States, moved to Alberta to trap for the Hudson Bay Company. Gradually he moved west and shifted from trapping to logging. In 1908 he was on the West Coast logging for the Powell River Company Mill. In 1932 he started his own saw mill, on leased land, at Anderson's Bay along the south shore of Powell Lake. Andy purchased most of his equipment from three or more mills in the area (Powell River Co. at Stillwater, Vanada and Yellow Cedar Co.). The mill operated for 28 years and at times employed up to 30 men, until the land lease was cancelled in 1960. Anderson and his wife Clara moved along with all of mill's equipment to a property on nearby Mowat Bay, but they were never able to re-establish a working saw mill. Many of the pieces of equipment remained outside until they were purchased and moved to Burnaby Village Museum in the mid 1970s. This steam donkey equipment was deaccessioned by Burnaby Village Museum in 2015.
