First set of photos from Brooke Hodson Collection

Terrace Primary Center


Started Monday July 17, 1967, completed in early 1968.
under the watchful eye of District Manager, Stan Patterson
Built by Crossroads Construction, of Prince George,
for $300,000.00
Originally 10,700 sq. ft. on each floor.
When it was built, it had parking for 8 vehicles,
Radio and Toll Equipment was moved from the previous building.
The Toll Center had facilities for direct distance dialing,
Auxiliary power equipment (in the basement),
and 16 long distance operator switchboard positions.
Later on some of the parking positions were taken up,
by the new GTD5 electronic switch addition.
A new larger diesel power generator building was added in the rear.
Houses were purchased on the lots behind the building
for more parking, as the building expanded it's use.

Terrace Plant Center

5215 Keith Ave
Note- my old brown 1975 Dodge PU is next to the BC Tel truck
and it's still going strong.
This was before the 2 big doors were added on the left here
for the Mechanic bays

Blackie Janot looking at a terrible splice in Simpson Subdiv.
