Summer Student Updates: Collections Assistant

Compact Shelving

The newly installed compact shelving units at The Port Moody Station Museum have given us the opportunity to reorganise and modernize our collections and records.  However, since their instalment this February, the museum staff has had their work cut out for them.  This is especially true for Peter Wallace, the Museum’s Collections Assistant.  He is working on the instalment and digitization of all our photographs, glassware, and iron tools, which is nearing completion.  The project next on hand for him is photographing and organizing the chairs, trunks, desks and drawers that came back from movable storage last week.  The reorganisation allows us to re-assess each item’s relevance to the heritage of Port Moody, ensuring that the Museum’s exhibits and programmes are the best they can be.
