History / Biographical
The City of St. Thomas was incorporated on March 4, 1881. Early services faced challenges due to the small infrastructure at the time. The City Engineering office was crucial in developing a system of waterworks and sewage treatment that improved the lives of City residents, beginning with a brick sewer down Elgin Street in 1882, and continuing with a bylaw for the creation of a waterworks in 1890. The latter went so smoothly that it was supplying the City with water since January 1891. The City Engineer at the time, James A. Bell, also designed a fire hall around 1882. The Engineering Department continued to maintain pre-existing sewers and install new ones, branching the sewer system out as the city expanded, including going into the Homedale area. During this time, the City documented the installation or maintenance of pre-existing sewers through photographs, as well as other projects under their jurisdiction.
Custodial History
Records were given to the Archives by Aaron VanOorspronk, Senior Technologist with the City of St. Thomas.
Scope and Content
The City of St. Thomas Engineering Department fonds consists primarily of photographs, both black and white and in colour, documenting structural defects in sidewalks and sewers, repairs, road widenings and other projects, alongside general documentation of roads, sewers, and buildings in St. Thomas, primarily from the 1940s through the 1970s.
This fonds consists of three series:
1. Events: Documentation, including reports, clippings, and photographs, surrounding large or notable events in which the City Engineer or Engineering Department was involved.
2. Photographs: Photographs documenting paving issues, sewer or maintenance work, or other projects done by City Engineering crew, arranged alphabetically by street name. Also includes a handful of miscellaneous images, filed in original order, documenting places, events, or items, such as dog pounds or storm damage.
3. Projects: Photographs, slides, and textual documents relating to more recent projects, from the 1970s up until 1998, often documenting the different stages of a large-scale project.

Black and white profile photograph showing Stanley Durkee of 176 Sydenham Street, Aylmer. He was asked his opinion on using the post office building for the new Town Hall, and felt that the old post office should be used for both police and municipal offices. However, he believed that the town should not have to pay the federal government's asking price of $60,000 for the building, and said that half that amount would be more reasonable.

Seven black-and-white negative photographs featuring the new municipal office in Wardsville, on November 7, 1985.
W9 B2 433a was published in the West Lorne Sun on November 7, 1985, with the caption: "Clerk Harold Turton enjoys his modern, new office, which is a far cry from conditions he worked under in a room in the Community Hall. With modern lighting, heating and air conditioning, plus shelving on which to store his materials, and counters to work off, he is very happy, but lonely because he does not have as many drop in to see him as they did when they passed the Community Hall after getting their mail."
W9 B2 433c was published in the West Lorne Sun on November 7, 1985, with the caption: "The Arthur Harold Municipal building opened recently after a $22,000 renovation to convert the former fire hall into a council chamber, clerk's office, hydro office, rest and storage rooms. In use a few weeks, lettering was not applied to the front of the building until recently. Three men were employed with a $20,000 federal governement grant, villagers putting up only $2,000."
W9 B2 433d was published in the West Lorne Sun on November 7, 1985, with the caption: "The Council Chamber is the best aruond, being complete with thickly upholstered charis, a refinished council table and individual desk pads. The large room has seating delegations, and is otherwise appointed to make it a pleasure for coucils to meet in. Unfortunately for Reeve Don Nisbet he will only be able to use it until the next meeting, when he retires from office."
