Dates of existence

[ca. 1940-1974]


The Ship Harbour Lake Mutual Telephone Company operated the telephone exchange between Ship Harbour and Oyster Pond, Halifax County, Nova Scotia, including Upper Lakeville, Lake Charlotte, Ship Harbour, DeBaies Cove, Owls Head, Little Harbour, Clam Harbour, and Clam Bay. Its area of operation likely reflects the current Lake Charlotte (845) telephone exchange. The company was probably incorporated under the Rural Telephone Act and was administered by a board of directors and three officers, including a president, vice-president and secretary-treasurer. The company was taken over by the Maritime Telephone and Telegraph Company (MT&T) in 1974.
