The series consists of ca. 4300 b&w and colour photographic prints and negatives taken between 1963 and 1973. Most were taken by the Government Photographic Branch but a few prints were taken by various commercial photographers and are stamped with their names. The photographs cover all areas of BC and show the construction of bridges, highways, public housing, universities, hospitals, public buildings such as mental hospitals and government buildings, ferries & terminals, regional colleges and public schools. There are also photographs of municipalities, resource and industrial photographs and transportation photographs. The photographs were collected by Hugh Ferguson of the Dept. of Finance for an unknown reason.
