View Near Pulp Mill – Bathurst | Forestry Fridays: Historic Views of Lumber Mills & Logging Scenes in Eastern Canada

This is an early 20th century postcard titled “View near pulp mill, Bathurst, New Brunswick“.

Excerpt: The Bathurst Pulp and Paper Industry -A Tale to Tell

” ….. Later Commodore Walker, followed by the Rankins and Cunards, established trading centers in the Bathurst area. Bathurst became an important shipbuilding port. Sawmills were established and by the turn of the 20th Century, two major mills were operating in the Bathurst area. A young man with great ambitions, Angus L. McLean, bought the two mills which became the building block for the establishment of the Pulp and Paper Industry in Bathurst. Construction of the mill began in

1914 and went into production in 1915. The first newsprint produced in the Maritimes was a great accomplishment for the Bathurst Company in 1923. The Company would eventually change over its production to meet World War II demands for boxboard.”

  1. Of all the things we think of in relation to Canada – hockey, Mounties, and logging, I would never have thought of paper mills. But of COURSE there would be paper mills; they would benefit from the logging!

    • I’m sorry I do not sell pulp.
      This site merely features historical images of the pulp and paper industry.
      Thank you for your interest,
