Albion Iron Works began in 1862, founded by Joseph Spratt primarily to meet Victoria’s demand for wood stoves. Spratt’s iron works expanded into shipbuilding, building boilers, and steam engines. He sold the company in 1882 to Wm. Irving and Robert Dunsmuir who built rail cars for Dunsmuir’s E & N Railway. Albion Iron Works made all the rails for the Fraser Canyon segment of the CPR. By 1893, it was manufacturing about 30 types of wood stoves, many of which were still being sold when the company dissolved in 1928.
