High Resolution Photos Now Available

The City Archives is pleased to announce that nearly 1,000 photographs on Heritage Burnaby are now updated to have high resolution JPEGs (access copies) available for viewing and downloading. The City Archives has been working to provide high resolution access copies online for photographs without privacy or copyright restrictions, and these photographs are the first phase of this project. All of the photographs updated in this phase belong to the Burnaby Historical Society Photograph Collection or are part of a fonds or collection previously in the custody of the Burnaby Historical Society. 

One example of the updated photos in this phase is the J.W. Phillips fonds

These photographs can be viewed and freely downloaded as usual. Photographs may display on Heritage Burnaby at a limited size, but are viewable at their full resolution when downloaded. Please credit the City of Burnaby Archives, the six-digit photograph item number, and the photographer’s name (if known) in any use of photographs downloaded from Heritage Burnaby.

The City Archives hopes that this will provide users with better access to these photographs, without any unnecessary barriers. More photographs will be updated with high resolution access copies in early 2019.
