Join us Wednesday evenings this fall for a lively series on local history. Speakers include Burnaby Village Museum and Burnaby Archives staff, as well as local historians and environmentalists.
Local historians, Eric Damer of the Burnaby Village Museum and Terry Slack, will share their knowledge and research about these two waterfront communities in the early 1900s. The City of Burnaby Archives will provide a chronological compilation of photographs of life on the Burrard Inlet from both a personal and industrial perspective. Participants are encouraged to share their own stories of living on Burnaby's waterfront.
Presented in partnership by the Burnaby Archives, the Burnaby Village Museum, Burnaby Public Library, the Heights Neighbourhood Association, and the Burnaby Historical Society. This talk will take place at the McGill Library, 4595 Albert Street.
