Early Delta History
Using archival images, an overview of Delta history from glaciations to the early 1900’s is revealed through this fascinating powerpoint presentation. The Fraser River is used as a launch pad to connect various aspects of Delta history, including the fishing and farming industries that encouraged the settlement of Delta and remain integral the community’s identity and continue today.
1858 on the Delta
This presentation is on the history of the Fraser River delta to 1858. This presentation uses archival images and first-hand accounts to explore the delta’s natural history, the rich heritage of the Tsawwassen First Nation, and the forces at play in 1858 that would set the delta on its journey to rapid development.
From the Archives vault of treasures, the Delta Museum and Archives Society presents two films. The first film is a promotional film made by the Delta Land Company in about 1930 to sell land in a development called “Delta Manor,” now a suburb centered on Hawthorne and Delta Manor Schools. The Company’s purpose was to persuade people to invest in state of the art chicken farms. The second film is a collection of home movies made by Edgar Dunning of Delta from 1949 to 1951. Some of what you will see is a May Day parade down Westham Street, harness racing at Paterson Park, volunteers fighting a fire at Perry’s White Store.
Border, Bay & Beach
Based on the exhibit of the same name, this presentation looks at growth and change in the economically, culturally, and ecologically rich region of South Delta. Discover how Tsawwassen, Point Roberts, and Boundary Bay came into existence and learn about the history of many on-going “hot spots” of controversy.
