What happened here, anyway? Did captain George have a brother sailing with him in another ship? Why do we have two Vancouvers so close together?

Any idea why the jaws appear to have a black oxide finish ?

OEM hardened jaws have a polished natural finish.

darryl: glad you asked the question, it turns out my history "knowledge" is a bit off regarding that area of Canada...

lots more history regarding the even older "Fort Vancouver":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Vancouver

Basically Fort Vancouver was the most south-west post of the HBC but the Oregon Treaty in 1846 established border at 49th parallel which was north of the natural north/south divide of the Columbia river (the fort was on the north shore of that river).
Incorporation was roughly 50 years apart, Vancouver Wa being first.
