Description

This digital collection consists of a series of historic photographs, dating from 1913 to 1948.

The CPL’s physical Coquitlam 100 Years Photographic Collection is made up of over 700 culturally significant black and white photographs of important landscapes, buildings, and figures from Coquitlam’s history. The digital collection is only a selection of the larger photograph collection. The full collection is currently housed in the Reference Department of the Poirier Branch of the Coquitlam Public Library.

All photographs were donated by Coquitlam residents and local organizations for use in the District of Coquitlam's 1990 publication Coquitlam 100 Years: Reflections of the Past, which was written by the Pioneer Tales Book Committee. They have been reproduced for educational and reference purposes.
