Scope and content

Photocopied portfolio of photographs and newspaper clippings of Alta Lake plane crash (1935). Each page contains information regarding the plane crash that claimed the life of R.W. Brock and three others shortly after taking off from Alta Lake (Whistler), BC on July 30, 1935. The 13 pages of information includes pictures taken shortly after the crash depicting how the plane landed nose down on a stump. The impact of the nose dive and subsequent crash onto the stump resulted in a force which ripped the engine from its mounts causing the engine to fall onto its occupants, crushing two of them on impact, including R.W. Brock, and claiming the life of the other two occupants shortly thereafter.
