Scope and content
Series consists of photographs created by the Ministry of Highways and Public Works and its predecessor body, the Ministry of Public Works, to document buildings and other projects from 1958 to 1978. Although the original series consisted of a set of project files which included correspondence, blueprints, programs and photographs, it was dismantled by archives staff in 1979. Programs were sent to the BC Archives library and the photographs were reaccessioned by the Visual Records branch. The photograph files contain images of official openings of government buildings, interior and exterior shots of various buildings and photographs of models and artist sketches for buildings.
Immediate source of acquisition
Transferred by the Ministry of Highways and Public Works in 1978.
Photographs were originally in the building or project subject files that are catalogued as GR-0376. Archives staff removed the photographs from each file and accessioned them separately as 197901-107. The new photograph folders were marked with the numeric file code and title from the original subject file.
