New Westminster, BC – Have you ever wondered when Sapperton, Queensborough and Connaught Heights became part of New Westminster? Or what was on the Waterfront before Quay and the boardwalk? Did you know that a 1960s plan would have turned Columbia Street into a tunnelled car-only thoroughfare? A new exhibition at the New Westminster Museum looks at how the city formed, with stunning maps, beautiful archival photos and quirky artefacts. The exhibition opens on Thursday June 1, with an opening reception from 6 pm – 8 pm, on the Anvil Centre third floor.
