NVMA’s story-filled walks entertain with tales of war time deeds and daring mountaineering adventures.
North Vancouver, BC – This July and August the North Vancouver Museum and Archives will present free, drop-in, story-filled walks at the Burrard Dry Dock site and in Lynn Canyon Park.
Burrard Dry Dock opened in 1906 and was, for most of the twentieth century, the largest shipyard in Western Canada. Over 450 ships were launched from this site including innovative self – dumping log barges, coastal ferries, icebreakers and most famously the WW II Victory ships. The war years were a busy time with around the clock production and a greatly expanded work force, which for the first time included women! Shipyard Pals Sal and Sam will perform stories of this exciting time while walking visitors through North Vancouver’s historic Burrard Dry Dock.
