Touchstones Nelson is hosting ceremony to launch the Society’s archival collection Saturday (May 4) from 1-4 p.m. in the Touchstones Lobby.

In 2011, Touchstones Nelson completed the first phase of an image digitization project that, for the first time, provided online access to hundreds of photos from Society’s archival collection. 

The photos are available for viewing through the Touchstones Nelson Flickr Photostream site:
Touchstones Nelson has now completed the second phase of this significant project with online access to an additional 1000 negatives, available to the public at:
Images include photos by JH Allen, JD Spurway, Ross Fleming, from the former Nelson Daily News and JSD Smith.

The images depict the Kootenays, but more specifically the City of Nelson and District, its people, events, landscape, and buildings from the beginning of settlement to more recent times.

The public is welcome to see the digitized images and learn more about the Shawn Lamb Archives collection.
