Emily Lonie got a pleasant surprise in the mail last summer.
The archivist for the city of Coquitlam received a scrapbook from a woman in Connecticut, who had cleared out her grandmother’s attic and found an album with about 60 photos of the building of the Coquitlam Dam.
The book is a treasure trove, showing black and white images of the
construction crews and their families from the winter of 1912 to the
summer of 1913.
