From the Archives: On display in HC315

HC315 archives display 2014

Do you work or have meetings in Hatley Castle? If so, check out the new archives photo display in the boardroom, HC315. There are four sets of photographs depicting the history of our site, as the Coast Salish lands that surround us, as the Dunsmuir family home, as Royal Roads Military College, and as Royal Roads University. The majority of the photographs are from the Royal Roads University Archives, with four Esquimalt and Songhees archival images that were chosen from the holdings at the BC Archives in consultation with Asma Antoine, Indigenous Education and Student Services Manager.

And just as an aside, do you think the photo on the right is of the same room, as it was in the Dunsmuir era? There are some striking similarities!

If you have any questions about these displays, please email or call extension 4122.
