Photographers’ Week

June 8-14 on our Facebook Page we are talking about photographers!  Our archival photography collection tells us so much about our community’s past.  A large number of these photographs come from a small number of people.  Names such as Godfrey and May Baldwin, Henry Twidle, Elizabeth Quocksister and Francis and Amy Barrow may look familiar if you have ever taken the time to explore some of our photographs.  

Currently the photographic exhibit “Cover Stories” featuring work by the Baldwins is on display in our Changing Gallery.  Come see that exhibit for free this week as part of the Museum’s re-opening celebration.

Museum at Campbell River respectfully acknowledges the Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ First Nation, on whose traditional lands we work to preserve, interpret and share the collective human history of North Vancouver Island. The Liǧʷiɫdax̌ʷ First Nation is comprised of the We Wai Kai, Wei Wai Kum and Kwiakah First Nations. Our closest neighbors are the Coast Salish Xwemalhkwu, Klahoose and K’ómoks First Nations.

These nations have close connections to the land where Campbell River is located today.
