Website of Websites Unlocks BC Treasures

Posted by Howard on Dec 6, 2012

The internet has provided a way for many history buffs and people with fascinating hobbies to get a lot of interesting knowledge onto the public record. If you doubt that, just pay a visit to The BC History Website and check out the vast array of material David Mattison has heroically collected there, which incidentally goes into many areas besides history. One of my favourite ways to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon is to go there and drift from Christopher Garrish’s exhibition of BC licence plates to Donald Waite’s amazing collection of air photos of BC communities to Mattison’s own Camera Workers, an exhaustive annotated listing of historical photographers of BC at There are hundreds of completely unexpected and remarkable sites the BC-ophile could spend weeks pondering. Try the BC History Website—you will be amazed.
