The internet has provided a way for many history buffs and people with fascinating hobbies to get a lot of interesting knowledge onto the public record. If you doubt that, just pay a visit to The BC History Website http://victoria.tc.ca/Resources/bchistory.html and check out the vast array of material David Mattison has heroically collected there, which incidentally goes into many areas besides history. One of my favourite ways to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon is to go there and drift from Christopher Garrish’s exhibition of BC licence plates http://www.bcpl8s.ca to Donald Waite’s amazing collection of air photos of BC communities http://www.globalairphotos.com/ to Mattison’s own Camera Workers, an exhaustive annotated listing of historical photographers of BC at http://members.shaw.ca/bchistorian/cw1858-1950.html. There are hundreds of completely unexpected and remarkable sites the BC-ophile could spend weeks pondering. Try the BC History Website—you will be amazed.
