The Great War Centennial

Trent Valley Archives is excited to host an Open House on Saturday, September 13 from 1-4 p.m. The event will feature diverse materials from World War I which have been donated to the Archives. These include photographs, memoirs and printed publications. The photographic exhibit, entitled “With Canadians on the Western Front”, is specially selected from the over 600 professionally-taken photographs in the Archives’ collection. A large photo of 93rd Battalion from May 1916 and newspapers of the times may be of special interest.

Harold Matthew’s commemorative album will also be available for viewing. Harold Matthews, who died in the First World War, was the son of T. Frank Matthews, one of the founders of Canada Packers, a large employer in Peterborough. Their plant was situated on the waterfront at Little Lake where the Holiday Inn is presently located.

Refreshments will be available and the event is free to the public. For more information please contact TVA at 705-745-4404 or by email at
