Heritage Lecture – Vancouver’s Police Museum: Stories from 240 E Cordova
October 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The building that houses the Vancouver Police Museum and Archives is a key artifact in the collection. Purpose built and opened in 1932, the former Coroner’s Office, Coroner’s Court, and City Analyst Laboratory reflects both innovative technology and city planning of its time. It remained in operation for seven decades. Transitioning to a museum starting in 1986, the building and its preserved spaces provide insight into how the Coroner’s work was conducted during much of the 20th century. Museum Director, Rosslyn Shipp and Curator, Elizabeth Peterson will discuss the use and adaptation of the building’s facilities through the decades, the Museum’s custodianship of the historic site today and the unique perspective the Museum offers to connect with Vancouver’s history.
In partnership with the Vancouver Heritage Foundation, our Heritage Lecture series offers illustrated talks that look at the history of Vancouver, covering the events, movements, and people that shaped our city. The talks are co-hosted by Vancouver Heritage Foundation and the Hycroft Heritage Preservation Foundation with net proceeds benefiting both organizations.
