Flyback Fridays Eric Andersen - short version

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past!  This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

This week we feature Eric Andersen, who is a local historian from Squamish. In 2017, Eric presented a tale about Pemberton as seen through the lens of historic newspapers.  In this short excerpt Eric talks about the BC and Klondike gold rushes, the 1918 Spanish flu and how the establishment of the Mt. Currie school was covered in national newspapers.  Watch it here.
