Have you ever wanted to see what Richmond looked like in the 1900s?
When you join the Steveston Walking Tour Vignettes this summer, you will, in fact, travel back to 1917.
“This program will celebrate Richmond’s unique heritage and provide an immersive experience for visitors to engage with Steveston’s history,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie.
The guided walking tours explore the streets of historic Steveston in June and July. The tours begin from the Steveston Museum and Visitor Centre at 4:30 p.m. on Fridays and 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
The Walking Tour Vignettes – Canada 150 Project allows visitors to experience the history of Steveston and understand the hardships the community faced.
Along the way, students from Hugh McRoberts Secondary School perform five short plays about living and working in Steveston.
Drama teacher Judyann McCarthy is looking forward to having her students get such an immersive learning experience.
“I have enjoyed working with this dedicated group of student actors on a project that takes us out of the classroom and into the world; watching them apply their skills and abilities in a whole new world – old Steveston”.
