Exhibition – Our Working Waterfront 1945 – 2015
An exhibition exploring the diversity of work on New Westminster’s Waterfront
This exhibition explores the diversity of work on the New Westminster waterfront from 1945 to the present, including shipbuilding, longshore work, food service, and tug boating. The exhibit draws on more than 90 oral histories with waterfront workers, and is the culmination of 4 years of collaboration between the New Westminster Museum and Archives, longshore pensioners of ILWU Local 502, teachers in our City’s schools, and Simon Fraser University.
The New Westminster Museum and Archives gratefully acknowledge the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia.
