Online Photo Archive

In November 2010 The Reach launched our new online photo archives. A selection of photos from our extensive collection will be available to search by place, year, topic and subject. Thanks to the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre Digitization Grant for supporting The Reach in this project. If you would like to assist with digitizing heritage photos please contact Kris Foulds Curator of Historical Collections or call 604 864-8087 x 122.
