Research Based Collecting

Hello for today!
Recently I was working on a project that required using our microfilm reader-printer. While going through the pages of the Chilliwack Progress newspaper I was reminded that it would be interesting to compile a list of products and other goods for sale in Chilliwack pre-1900 and so on. Half the battle is learning what exists, who the merchants were, what did they produce and what did they offer for sale. In the near future I will focus on a few Chilliwack specific items that we would like to add to the collection.
