NW Chronicler

Chronicle - v. to record, document, put on record an historical event, place, or time. This past year we witnessed the heart-breaking destruction of an historical area in New Westminster during the fire on Columbia Street. If it wasn't for the photographers of the past we would not have had a visual reference to our memories. This month let us chronicle old New Westminster. The buildings, bridges, streets, houses, schools, and businesses that were built before 1950 which is the benchmark used by the Historical Preservation Society. This will give us a chance to try sepia or black and white, but not strictly, to give an old world feel to our photos.
