Whistler Question Photo Archives Being Digitized

The 1978-1985 photo archives of The Whistler Question (Whistler, British Columbia, Canada) are being archived. “When the collection’s digitization is complete, anyone with an Internet connection will be able to explore this town’s sporting events, parades, Village construction projects, road collisions, festivals and portraits of locals from the years 1978-1985. Corresponding captions that originally accompanied the photos in each week’s published newspapers will tell the story of Whistler’s transitional years and the day-to-day lives of the people who lived here at the time, all on one snazzy website.” Seven years might not seem like much, but that’s about 35,000 photos according to the story.
