Penticton  

An Okanagan milestone

The Okanagan Archive Trust Society has just released its 20th edition of their journal Archivos.

The journal began as a two-page newsletter for its membership and is now a 40 page glossy periodical distributed to subscribes across Western Canada.This five year success story is unprecedented in heritage circles for a full colour quarterly.

The publication is supported by enthusiastic local businesses whose advertising pays for the printing.

Over the past five years, the society has gathered some outstanding, province-wide history writers contributing sound research of the region's "colourful" past.

Headquartered in Penticton, the periodical is designed and edited by society archivist Brian Wilson, known to many in the South Okanagan as 'Mr. History' for his entertaining lectures and displays.

The Society invites readers to visit their website www.oldphotos.ca for thousands of pictures and articles of the historic Okanagan.
