Moments in time

The public is answering the Trail Historical Society's call for artifacts, including the VISAC Gallery.

Artistic Director Kristen Renn recently came across an old box in the VISAC Gallery collections. Upon opening the yellowing carton she was delighted to find black and white photos that illustrate the arts and culture scene in Trail, all taken pre-1950. Renn was on the hunt for treasures to share with the Trail Historical Society after reading the Trail Times Jan. 26 story, “Public’s help sought to complete museum exhibits.” (the society is in a final push for historical artifacts that could become part of museum displays in the Riverfront Centre) In fact, the historical society was feeling the community’s warm embrace this week when numerous individuals and groups stepped forward with one-of-a-kind donations that truly embody the city’s rich and diverse history.
