Thousands of historic photos, maps damaged in Parks Canada building flood, Revelstoke, BC
Thousands of historic photos, maps damaged in Parks Canada building flood: This is a Vancouver Sun report about "archival" records stored by Parks Canada in Revelstoke, BC, that were damaged in a flooded building they leased. The question for me is whether these records were under the control of Library and Archives Canada or was this one of those backoffice archives that exist at all levels of government. What a shame to read about, in particular, the damage and potential loss of so many photographs. I just hope most are duplicates of ones preserved elsewhere.
