Celebrate the digital collection of Nelson's former Renwick's Portrait Studio.

Renwick’s Portrait Studio Collection unveiled at Touchstones Nelson

The completion of the the digital collection of the Renwick's Studio portrait collection will be celebrated Saturday night.

For the past four months, an archives student enrolled in the University of British Columbia’s school of library, archival and information studies has been researching, digitizing, and preserving photographic images from the Renwick’s Portrait Studio Collection.

Owned and operated by Archibald (Archie) Renwick, the studio opened in 1942 and was located at 577 Ward Street between 1958 and 1984.

Over this period, Renwick took numerous photographs that reflect the diversity, popular fashions, and prominent residents of the city of Nelson.

We will be celebrating the completion of this project on Saturday, April 28 in the main lobby of Touchstones Nelson.

Drop by for some refreshments and information on how to view this diverse collection of over 300 digitized

Nelson-based portraits now located on the Touchstones Nelson Flickr® Photostream.

This project was made possible through the generous funding of the BC Arts Council.
