Get a glimpse of New Westminster’s transportation history from 1900 to 1990 through a collection of historic photographs on display now at the library.
‘Trains, Trams & Automobiles’ is an ongoing exhibit with pictures of transportation and related infrastructure in New Westminster drawn from the library’s Historic Photograph collection. Included in the display are photos of steamships, bicycles, airplanes, filling stations, and the construction of the SkyTrain.
I just love looking at old photographs. I’ve whiled away hours surfing the New West Historical Photograph collection online. Will’s family also has a collection of vintage photographs from New Westminster’s early days, such as the one on the right showing the Pattullo Bridge construction.
