Featuring juxtaposed historic and contemporary photographs taken in 2023 from the same viewpoint by Mission photographer Bob Friesen, this online video will allow the viewer to travel back in time to see what once was in relation to some places in Mission today. Discover how buildings that were once there have been redeveloped in contract to those repurposed for a new function while retaining some of their original structure and architectural elements. This YouTube video is the second one in the Archives ever-popular THEN & NOW series. All of the images are housed in the Mission Community Archives.

Video will be available Friday, October 13th.



Mission Community Archives

The Archives serves local residents and the global community by acquiring, preserving, maintaining, documenting and making available for public research records of archival value to the City of Mission and the Fraser Valley Regional District Electoral Areas. Archivist Val Billesberger believes that key to carrying out to archives' mandate is to engage the public by showcasing Mission’s storied past through its online presence, public programs and community partnerships.
