Souvenir China from the Green Heart of British Columbia

With some changes to our display building it was good to have some of our commemorative china return to the curatorial department for care and attention. As I worked through the several examples in the museum's collection I was reminded of an earlier Museum and Archives exhibit that focused upon the promotion of Chilliwack and district to locals and visitors.

Souvenir china was, at one time, extremely popular and over the years I have seen examples from across British Columbia, Canada and elsewhere.
