Powell River Shingle Company

I am not in possession of this shingle, its now sitting on a wall in Australia I think, sad its left the area but at least I have a picture. Made from the Powell River Shingle Company which ran its operations I do believe at the Shingle Mill on Powell Lake, now Powell Lake Marina and The Shingle Mill Pub.

    My mother in Riverhead, NY, is having her house reshingled. Her carpenter just found a shingle that has the Powell Lake Shingle name on it. Found this post with a 5 sec of googling and don’t know much about Powell Lake. Would like to know a bit more.

    Hi, I now live in Southern UK. but grew up in Powell River and spent many hours down The Shingle Mill,it thrived as a business in the early part of 1900’s but was abandoned in the late 30s I think.My school friends used to live in some of the houses right up til the late 60s. I have many photos of the days when the mill operated right through the 50/60s and even some from my recent trips back.If you are interested and have an email address I can send then to you with a brief history
