Administrative history

The Enterprise Newspaper was a weekly newspaper that covered the Tri-Cities area between 1969 and 1981. It amalgamated with the Herald Newspaper in June 1981 and became the Herald-Enterprise Newspaper. The Herald-Enterprise Newspaper ceased publication on October 9, 1984 after W.E. Dunning Publishing went out of business.

Custodial history

The donation of material came directly from the Port Coquitlam Heritage and Cultural Society. The Port Moody Station Museum transferred the photographs to the Port Coquitlam Heritage and Cultural Society in 2011. The photographs were accessioned by the Port Moody Museum in 1985. It is unknown when the photos were transferred from their creator, the Enterprise Newspaper, to the Port Moody Museum.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of black and white photographs, some black and white negatives, and the occasional colour photograph taken by photographers working for the Enterprise Newspaper. Notations on the backs of the photographs indicate that they were used to plan the publication of the newspaper, and some have cropping written directly on the photograph. Most of the photographs depict residents of Coquitlam.
