Object History
The tools included in this donation belonged to Samuel Robins. Samuel and his wife Sarah Ann Robins moved to Burnaby in 1918. Robins could not find work in England in 1912 so he set off for New Zealand to find work. The ship he was to have sailed upon was delayed, but he needed to arrive in New York in time for the train to connect for the ship to New Zealand, so he sailed on the Olympic -- the sister ship to the Titanic. Upon arrival in New York he wired Sarah Ann grandmother that he had arrived safely. Samuel was a stonemason who worked on many projects in the Lower Mainland, including constructing houses in Shaughnessy and he also worked in the Vancouver City Hall. The family lived on Dover Street. His granddaughter believes that he brought his tools with him when he came to Canada.
