Revelstoke’s B.C. Interior Forestry Museum is releasing a 2016 calendar that highlights the logging pioneers of our community through a series of images from the museum’s archives.

The calendar is called Logging Legends and focuses on the many incredible pioneers of logging within the Revelstoke area.

Anna Minten, the forestry museum manager, said she had the pleasure of going through their archived photo collection to select the photos that will adorn walls in the year 2016. Stating while going through the collection.

“There are too many amazing pictures, and too many incredible people who have contributed to the industry over the last 100 years to fit them all in this calendar,” Minten said. “These pictures and people deserve to be shared and seen. The funds generated from this years calendar are to be focused on our photo archiving project to digitize the museum’s collection so it may be viewed online by all for years to come.”

The calendar is in black and white keeping with its antiqued theme with an incredible collection of old pictures dating as far back as 1902.

The calendars will be available in stores around town on Nov. 21 with the various store locations posted on the museum’s website after the release. The museum is also still looking for sponsors.
