More High Resolution Photos Now Available

The City Archives has completed the next phase of its project to provide high resolution JPEGs (access copies) online for photographs without privacy or copyright restrictions. As part of this phase, more than 1,000 additional photographs now have high resolution access copies available for viewing and downloading on Heritage Burnaby.

All of the photographs updated in this phase are part of the Peers Family and Hill Family fonds or the Hill family and Vidal family fonds. The extensive family photographs included in these fonds depict daily life, landscapes, and local events in the Lower Mainland, and primarily feature Burnaby’s Deer Lake and Burnaby Lake (Historic Neighbourhood) in the early 20th century.

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.

More information about the first update of high resolution access copies is available here. More photographs will be updated with high resolution access copies in early spring 2019.
