Canada’s 150th anniversary has given preserving our community’s history a boost.

The yellowing, fragile back copies of the earliest editions of The Richmond Review will now be preserved thanks to a $10,000 grant from The Richmond Canada 150 Community Celebration Grant Program.

The Friends of the Richmond Archives’ successful grant application means that a good portion of the early days of The Richmond Review will be digitized so they will not only be preserved for posterity but also be searchable electronically.

Anyone who has had to go through pages and pages of an old newspaper looking for a specific story or topic will appreciate the new, quicker way to search old sources.

So, thanks to this grant and the Friends of the Archives, Richmond’s past is secured for generations to come.
