The Rossland Heritage Commission is hoping to locate more photographs of early Rossland and early Rosslanders for two projects they would like to complete in 2018.
The first project is a reprinting of, “First History of Rossland, B.C.” written by Harold Kingsmill in 1897. The text is the original work of Kingsmill, but formatted in a more readable style, and we would like to add pictures of 1894 to 1897 origin. The second project is the redoing of the 3 back panels of the signage at Esling Park with themes of a) Early History, b) Gold Mining, c) Boomtown/Community.
The Heritage Commission has exhausted the Museum source of pictures, and would appreciate being able to scan any pictures that people may have in their family history archival material to share with the public through our 2 projects – pictures reflecting our mining history, WKP, early transportation, pictures of people, homes, businesses, activities, events, etc. Desirable dates would be from 1895 to 1910.
Please contact Jackie Drysdale at 362 3323 if you can help.
