Surrey Archives presents fall program series

Saturday morning sessions tell the stories of our changing city through photographs, advertisements and more.

A safe-driving event held in Cloverdale in 1957.

You’ll gain a new perspective on your city this fall, thanks to the Surrey Archives, where a new program series is about to get underway.

Growing Up in Surrey, presented Oct. 13, offers a look back at Surrey through the lens of different generations. Photographs and reminiscences will paint a picture of what it’s like growing up in our city.

Before 1900, Surrey only had a handful of roads, and less than 2,000 residents. Surrey Pre-1900, presented Oct. 20, looks back at Surrey’s early years.

Business as Usual (Nov. 3), uses photographs, vintage advertisements and more to help highlight prominent businesses in Surrey’s history, including the Surrey Co-op and the Surrey Leader.

Surrey From Above (Nov. 10) offers a whole new point of view. Fly high from above the city and see Surrey from above through aerial photographs from the Archives collection.

All sessions run from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. They’re for ages 16 and up. Register by calling the Surrey Archives at 604-502-6459 or the Surrey Museum at 604-592-6956, Tuesday to Saturday.

You can register for all four Saturday morning sessions and receive a discount, otherwise they’re $10 each to attend.

The Surrey Archives is located at 17671 56 Avenue (Highway 10). It’s open Tuesday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Temporarily closed from 1-2 p.m.).

Admission is free.
