Some of the photos now available in the Touchstones Nelson digital online collection have been mined from various local sources.

Access to historical images grows significantly at Touchstones Nelson

Touchstones Nelson has now completed the second phase of this significant project with online access to an additional 1,000 negatives

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 the archival collection. The photos are available for viewing through the Touchstones Nelson Flickr Photostream site: flickr.com/photos/touchstonesnelson.

Touchstones Nelson has now completed the second phase of this significant project with online access to an additional 1,000 negatives available to the public at: touchstonesnelson.ca/exhibitions/photos/.

Images include photos by J.H. Allen, J.D. Spurway, Ross Fleming, Nelson Daily News, and J.S.D. 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 invited to join Touchstones for the launch party on May 4 at 1 p.m. in the lobby to view the digitized images and learn more about the Shawn Lamb Archives collection. Refreshments will be served.
