Roedde House Museum: Curator's Corner
History & heritage
A behind the scenes look at artefacts from the Roedde House Museum's collection! Roedde House is the 1893 restored home of Vancouver's first bookbinder, Gustav Roedde. The house has been fully furnished with artefacts from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In a series of 3 short videos, artefacts, which are in storage and not normally accessed by the public on tours, will be showcased. The videos will be available for viewing on the museum's website and YouTube channel, and will be released during the run of Culture Days.

Video 2: Antique Photographs and Ephemera Our staff explore our collection of tintypes, photographs and ephemera, highlighting those which are unusual or unique. Video 3: Historical Cookbook Recipes View pages from our collection of antique Victorian and Edwardian cookbooks, as our staff pick out appealing and not so appealing historical dishes.
