Tracks in Time Contributors

Had a chance to read through some of our new book Tracks in Time: Port Moody’s First 100 Years? Interested in hearing more amusing and touching stories from Port Moody’s past?

Come and visit some of the book’s contributors at the next Centennial event – “Living Heritage” at the Port Moody Library Saturday, March 2nd from 1:30-3:30pm. Have a chat with local seniors Valerie Julian, Shirley Robitaille, Orme Payne and John (Garry) Bugden or listen to Nancy Greenall share her experience as Miss Port Moody 1974. While you’re there, have a cup of tea and stop by to see our new listen station “Port Moody Memories”.

Port Moody Memories shares clips of audio recordings from three early Port Moody residents. Listeners can enjoy the stories while watching a slide show of photographs relating to each topic. Listen to Mary Jones arrival in Port Moody in 1912, Bert Flinn’s harrowing sawmill accident or Fred Laidlaw describe the many recreational activities of Ioco town. Thank you to our Exhibits Assistant Will McGraw for creating each video and volunteer Devin Jain for creating the computer application to make the process user friendly.

If you haven’t purchased your copy of Tracks in Time, it will be available to purchase at the event.

Telegram to the Library

Did you know that the “Station Telegram” is available in the Port Moody Public Library? I discovered that fact in my web surfing. The museum newsletter, which is mailed out to members, seems to be a part of the collection. The collection apparently goes back to when it used to be called “The Port Moody Heritage Society Newsletter. I have only seen the entry online and not actually seen the newsletter in the library collection yet, but probably will look it up the next time I drop in. You can find the online catalogue listing on the Port Moody Library’s Horizon Information Portal.
