Time Travel with Surrey Archives
If you have ever stood before a new build in Surrey and wondered what stood there in the past, the next virtual Surrey Archives program is for you. The program will highlight archival photographs of well-known Surrey locations and compare them to their modern counterparts. Attendees can expect photos of businesses, landscapes, community facilities and infrastructure from various periods. Archives staff will share the historic context and hange behind each site.
Over the last century, Surrey has transformed from a rural municipality to an urban centre. Still, each transition hits a little different. While the intersection of King George Highway and 72nd Avenue has changed significantly, the Esso Station there still echoes the past. Repurposing is also a theme ingrained in Surrey. Take Newton’s Fire Hall 10 for example. It opened in 1962 but has served as the Newton Cultural Centre since 2010.
Surrey Time Lapse Tool
Even if you can’t make the program, you can check out the Surrey Time Lapse tool online, featuring archival photos geo-located to modern-day locations in Surrey.
