Last ‘tea and conversation’ at Comox Archives and Museum

This Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. will be the last of the summer series of tea and conversation at the Comox Archives and Museum.

DO YOU KNOW what this building was? Do you feel like talking about it?The Comox Museum and Archives would love to see and hear you this Friday at its final tea and conversation of the summer.

This Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. will be the last of the summer series of tea and conversation at the Comox Archives and Museum.

We have talked about the grand history of St. Joseph’s Hospital and its contribution to the community over 100 years. We have talked about where people lived and some of their contributions to Comox.

We are continuing to fill in the information about the development of Comox and the area.

Our focus will be about business in Comox. We are trying to work out who owned them – who they were sold to – what business grew up along Comox Avenue.

Our Evolution of Comox project is continuing to grow.

We will have mystery photos for you to look through and help identify people and locations, maps for you to help locate the development … and we will talk history and have fun as we reconstruct a layered look at our development.

Bring your best memories old and new – enjoy the conversation and refreshments.

The place to be Aug. 23 is the Comox Museum at 1729 Comox Ave. Let’s talk.
