This Sunday, Sept 16, from noon – 2:00 pm, Vancouver Postcard Club presents a talk by Art Davies on postcards of Britannia Beach – mines and community.
Britannia Beach was a ‘company town’ 50 kms north of Vancouver. At one time it was the largest Copper producing mine in the British Empire; it operated until 1974. Beset by landslides and other tragedies throughout its history, it is now a National Historic Site and enjoying the success of the refurbished Britannia Mine Museum.
This talk will be at the Hastings Community Centre in Vancouver, 3096 East Hastings St., V5K 2A3.
