Archival Photo Gallery

Smith Collection

This collection of photographs was taken by John Stephen “Derry” Derward Smith (d. March 28, 1967) while he worked as a land inspector for the BC Government. Derry also volunteered at the Nelson Museum as a historian. These photographs depict the wider Kootenay region in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and more significantly the remnants of the Dewdney Trail.
