Our Digital Collection is Now Available!
Pender Harbour Living Heritage Society maintains a rapidly growing managed collection of items documenting the history of the Pender Harbour area from the late 1800s to the present. The collection contains artifacts, photographs, maps, drawings and other records, and is now available online for public view!
An easy way to get started is to try Random Images. Sit down with your family over the holidays and have a look at Click and Search. Can you identify any of the unknown people in the photos? If so, click the “Send Us Feedback” icon (upper right) on the Photo Record page to send us details or comments. Enjoy!
